Napa police arrested two East Bay men Monday who are suspected of stealing cellphones from Verizon stores in the North Bay, a police lieutenant said. An employee of the Verizon store at 1715 Trancas St. called police around 5:40 p.m. to report three people in the store who matched the description of the suspects who stole phones at the Verizon stores in Fairfield, Vacaville and Vallejo, Lt. Debbie Peecook said.
Police observed the suspects take five cellphones worth $3,100 and flee the store, Peecook said. Police arrested Artis Crenshaw, 24, of Antioch, after he fought with an officer and bystanders outside the front door, Peecook said. Crenshaw was in possession of cocaine and he was wanted on several outstanding warrants.
Bequandre James Davis, 23, of Pittsburg, was arrested near the state Highway 29 off-ramp after a short pursuit by two officers, Peecook said. The third suspect fled north to the Target store and across Highway 29 to the Marriot Hotel, Peecook said. Police searched the area but did not locate the suspect. All the stolen phones were recovered, Peecook said.
