On July 8 at about 10:08 p.m., Santa Monica police officers were dispatched to Sephora at 1244 Third Street Promenade regarding a woman who was in custody for theft.

They made contact with the store loss-prevention agent who had been monitoring closed-circuit television cameras. The agent saw a woman place several items into her purse and two shopping bags. The woman then selected a brush cleaner and paid for it at the cashier’s counter, failing to pay for the items in her bags.

The woman left the store and was contacted by the agent. The suspect was then escorted back to the store, at which time the police were called.

The officers were given an itemized receipt of the stolen items, which totaled about $1,491.

The suspect, Lourdes Carlon Deleon, 24, of Los Angeles, was then transported to the police station, where she was booked for grand theft. Bail was set at $20,000.
