More than $200,000 worth of stolen Lululemon leggings were found at a La Habra apartment after California Highway Patrol officers issued a search warrant last week, officials said.
Officials said investigators with the CHP’s Organized Retail Crime Task Force were alerted to three large boxes of Lululemon goods on June 6. The boxes were shipped from Ohio to the condominium complex.
The CHP said officers intercepted the packages and delivered them to the address themselves. Upon delivery of the package, investigators saw several other similar boxes and obtained search warrants.
According to the CHP, 16 boxes with 1,861 stolen items were secured in the apartment. Investigators said the goods were stolen from multiple locations, including stores in Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin.
The CHP said Lululemon officials told officials that the number of stolen items recovered was the largest in the company’s history.
It was not immediately announced if any of the residents of the apartment were arrested. It was not known how many residents were in the home when officers arrived to deliver the package.
According to the CHP, he told officers he didn’t know what was in the boxes.
The CHP Organized Retail Crime Task Force, based in the agency’s Border Division, works with retailers across the state to thwart organized groups systematically breaking into retail stores.
