MERCED - Early last Saturday Merced Police Detectives Paul Johnson and Brian Rodriguez were working a burglary detail patrolling the area of the Merced Mall, when they discovered that the south door to JC Penny had been smashed. The discovery was made before the alarm to the store had gone off. The suspect smashed the south side door with a rock that was later found inside the store.

Once inside, the suspect went directly to the cash registered, ransacked the counter area and left the store without getting any money and only a couple of shirts. Prior to the burglary, both detectives saw an individual who they know as Ronnie Chestnut riding his bicycle in the area. Chestnut was arrested last week for possession of stolen property from the Peraino’s Jewelers burglary that occurred on March 4th and is the same individual who was arrested in a stolen vehicle after he crashed into the Merced Police Department south station on January 31st.
