Four arrested after shoplifting, scuffle at Home Depot
December 23, 2015, 05:00 AM

Four people suspected of conspiring to shoplift at a Home Depot store in San Carlos on Monday were arrested following a scuffle, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call regarding a fight between a suspect and store security at about 8:45 p.m. Monday at the Home Depot at 1125 Old County Road, sheriff’s officials said.

Deputies discovered that the suspect, identified as 27-year-old Gregory Stoft, of San Francisco, had allegedly been shoplifting merchandise when a security guard stopped him.

Stoft was apparently taking items to a vehicle parked outside with three other suspects: 29-year-old Novato resident Kyle Burkhard, 28-year-old Pacifica resident Danielle Dwyre and 25-year-old Daly City resident Gina Flanagan.

When confronted by store security, Stoft handed over stolen merchandise when the security guard said a surveillance camera captured him stealing it, sheriff’s officials said.

However, he then allegedly assaulted the security guard in an attempt to get away, but was ultimately detained after a brief struggle. The other three suspects left the store’s parking lot in their vehicle, which was stopped later by sheriff’s deputies on Brittan Avenue at Industrial Road, sheriff’s officials said.

A controlled substance was allegedly found in the possession of the trio. Burkhard and Dwyre were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a crime and possession of a controlled substance. Stoft was arrested on those counts plus a robbery count.

Flanagan was arrested only on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact San Mateo County sheriff’s detectives at (650) 363-4051.
