Female Illegals Arrested for Stealing Thousands in Merchandise as ‘Organized Theft Ring’ Hits Florida
Charlotte County Sheriff's Office

A pair of female illegal aliens were arrested in Florida for stealing thousands of dollars of merchandise from stores across the state in what authorities believe are the activities of an “organized retail theft ring.”

Just before 3 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) was called by an employee at a Burlington Store in Port Charlotte where “two Hispanic females” were “in the act of committing theft,” CCSO explained in a press release.

CCSO deputies arrived and detained the women, who were observed loading around $400 of stolen goods into a 2024 Hyundai Tucson with California plates.

Deputies discovered large quantities of clothing and other merchandise from stores such as Marshall’s and Ross inside the vehicle.

CCSO estimated the total value of the booty at more than $6,250.

“The suspects were in possession of tools used to remove anti-theft devices from retail merchandise,” CCSO says.

“Both females were transported to the CCSO District 2 Office to be interviewed, where they each provided full confessions.”

They were identified as Carla Stephany Soto Araneda, 23, and Genesi Michael Flores Reyes, 22.

Both are illegally present in the U.S. but other details remain limited.

The women were being held in Charlotte County Jail as of Wednesday.

Investigators believe the suspects traveled to Florida from California and carried out thefts all across the state prior to their arrest.

“I’m not sure why the message isn’t getting through to these out-of-towners that think they are going to come into Charlotte County, commit crimes, and get away with it. We have proven, multiple times, that it won’t fly here,” Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummel warned in a statement.

“Although I try not to make a habit of giving criminals advice, I do want to suggest that if they are passing through my county, just pass right on through. Don’t even stop… don’t try your nonsense here.”
