The two Californian women, have been arrested in Moraga, after receiving credit on the items they stole.

Dominika Johnson, 25, of Oakland, and Kendra Hill, 28, of Antioch, went to the Home Goods store and stole some items.

Employees recognized Johnson as she had returned stolen items to the shop three times in the past two weeks, police said.

Officers were called to the store, and Johnson was arrested on suspicion of robbery, conspiracy, receiving stolen property, probation violation, and outstanding warrants for grand theft and traffic violations.
