Alleged shoplifter charged after struggle with security guard

A scuffle at the mall between a suspected shoplifter and a security guard led to a forcible robbery charge against the would-be thief, a police report said.

Stanley Leon Turner Jr., 27, of Oakland was arrested around 8:21 p.m. Nov. 4 outside Macy's in Stoneridge Shopping Center.

Turner tried on an $89 pair of Polo shoes, gave his old shoes to a female acquaintance, then left the store, according to the report, which said he was stopped inside the mall by a guard.

The security guard tried to bring Turner back inside, but a scuffle broke out between the two, leading to the forcible robbery charge.

In other police reports:

Two laptops worth $800 and $500 and a $300 netbook were stolen Nov. 2 from a home in the 500 block of Tannet Court. The theft was reported at about 5:17 p.m.; the patio doors to the home may have been left unlocked.

A Nov. 4 burglary at the store at Foothill High School netted $125 speakers, $10 in candy and $5 of soda. There was no sign of forced entry to the store.
