MURRIETA - Three San Bernardino County residents suspected of stealing 28 cans Enfamil baby formula from a Murrieta grocery store have been arrested, a sergeant said today.

The suspects were caught allegedly trying to conceal the pilfered items in a freezer of the Albertsons grocery store on Scott Road then ran when employees reported them to police at 3 p.m. Friday, Murrieta police Sgt. Dave Baca said.

They tried speeding away in a black Acura car with paper license plates and headed south on Antelope Road, but an officer pulled the suspects over on Clinton Keith Road.

Officers brought Albertsons employees to the spot where the suspects were stopped and they identified the suspects, Casey Leon Banks Jr., 20, of San Bernardino, Charlotte Genesis Chatman, 21, of Highland, and Daquvin Winslett, 22, of San Bernardino, as the same people who allegedly stole $450 worth of the infant formula from the business Dec. 18., Baca said.

Video surveillance captured images of the three suspects in the act from the previous alleged theft, but officers also found 23 unopened cans of Enfamil inside the Acura they traveled in, Baca said.

Banks was booked on two counts of second degree burglary but posted $10,000 bail and was released. Chatman was also booked for second degree burglary and remained behind bars in lieu of $5,000 bail but Winslett's name did not appear in online jail records.
