On June 2 at approximately 12:50 p.m., Santa Monica police officers responded to Sears at 302 Colorado Ave., regarding a shoplifting suspect who had left the premises carrying a set of stolen speakers.

Loss prevention agents for the store provided a suspect description and direction of travel.

Shortly thereafter, officers located and detained the suspect a few blocks away from the location. A search of the suspect’s backpack yielded the stolen items.

The suspect was transported and booked for an outstanding no-bail, parole warrant and shoplifting. Christopher Langston, 42, of Inglewood, was denied bail.
