Mayra Gutierrez-Leon, 29, and Eddwin Ricardo Bejerano-Barrios, 28, both of Los Angeles, were arrested at the mall April 8, after Woodburn police received reports from several different store witnesses and video surveillance showing the couple stealing clothing.

After contacting the suspects and searching their vehicle, officers allegedly recovered additional stolen merchandise valued over $5,000, according to a press release.

Recovered clothing merchandise was returned to various stores at the mall, but the Woodburn Police Department is working to return additional stolen merchandise to stores not located at the mall.

The couple was found in possession of tools used to remove clothing alarm sensors and “booster” bags that had been modified to attempt to defeat store alarm pedestals.

According to police, the couple was transported to the Marion County Correctional Facility and lodged on one charge each of organized retail theft, a class B felony.
