Placer County Deputies say they have arrested three burglary suspects and are seeking a fourth person after the group stole baby formula and other items from stores from the Bay Area to Reno.

Deputies say two men and two women entered a store in Auburn on Wednesday and were seen filling duffel bags with baby formula. When a clerk approached them, they say one man ran out of the north Auburn Bel Air store with a bag full of stolen items. The three other suspects allegedly dumped stolen merchandise in various aisles before they ran outside to a blue sedan. Two employees chased the first man, but stopped when he crossed Highway 49.

Deputies then swarmed the area – and witnesses pointed them to the blue rental sedan, which was parked behind a building on Kemper Road, directly across the highway from the store.

Authorities say a deputy detained the two women after they ran from the sedan. One man ran in a different direction, and despite setting up a perimeter and help from CHP air support and a K9 search, neither man was found.

About two hours later, 24-year-old Damon Yon Marcus Nash of Hayward was found walking along Highway 49 near Live Oak Lane. He was taken into custody without incident.

Deputies say the sedan held 160 stolen items, the majority of which were large containers of baby formula, but they say they also found quantities of Prilosec medication, Sensodyne toothpaste and large bottles of tequila. Detectives say they have determined the stolen items were taken from several grocery stores from the Bay Area to Reno.

18-year-old Charday Mariah Monique Brown of Hayward, 20-year-old Torryiel Gayla Griggs of Oakland, and Nash were booked at the Placer County Jail on charges of commercial burglary and conspiracy.  

Griggs also had a burglary warrant from Alameda County.

Detectives are looking for the fourth suspect - and have not provided any additional information on a physical description.
