Palm Desert Business Reports Grand Theft and Arrest of Two Men from Los Angeles Area

A recent grand theft at a Palm Desert business has led to the arrest of two men from the Los Angeles area. The incident occurred on a Monday evening and was discovered by deputies who responded to a report of the crime.

Upon arrival, the deputies found that two men had entered the business and concealed merchandise on themselves before leaving without paying. They then fled in a white, newer-model Lexus. The investigation was taken over by the Palm Desert Special Enforcement Team (SET) and the Palm Desert Business District Team (BDT).

The suspects were located at a shopping center in La Quinta around 8:35 p.m., where they attempted to flee but were apprehended after a brief pursuit. The stolen items, along with suspected stolen wine bottles and medication, were recovered from inside their vehicle.

Both men were booked into the John Benoit Detention Center for grand theft and felony evading. The investigation is still ongoing, and anyone with information about the theft or the recovered items is urged to contact Deputy Hindiyeh or Deputy Botella at the Palm Desert Sheriff’s Station. They can be reached at 760-836-1600.
