Concord Police arrested two Antioch residents who allegedly shoplifted items from Sunvalley mall on Saturday.

According to police, officers were patrolling the Sunvalley Mall on Contra Costa Blvd. when some shoppers alerted them to a shoplifting incident at a store inside the mall.

Witnesses provided officers with a description of the thieves’ vehicle, which was quickly located by an officer as it entered interstate 680, police said.

Officers pulled over the vehicle and detained the two suspects inside, who were identified as Kadeem Hodge and Tiana Mayberry, both of Antioch. Inside the vehicle officers found stolen merchandise from several stores, police said.

Hodge and Mayberry were arrested on suspicion of shoplifting, conspiracy and possessing burglary tools, police said.

It makes sense to me December 3, 2017 at 1:02 PM

Whats up with all these back shots, I want to see some face.

Loretta December 3, 2017 at 1:16 PM

Interesting insert in the last photo. I assume that is to block the signal from reaching the anti-theft security tags on the merchandise?

Yup December 3, 2017 at 1:20 PM

@1 remember in california we must protect the rights of criminals at all costs….. who cares if the streets are overrun by criminals the politicians live in gated communities…. gotta be sure the get the criminal votes cause it will never affect us just the normal citizens.

Hope they get actual charges, not just catch and release. I’m tired of the professional shop lifters increases prices for everyone else.

PO'd December 3, 2017 at 1:29 PM

Hey, it beats workin’ for a livin’.
Less than $950? You’re in,you’re out.
I doubt whether a pic will be released, as the perp pictured is a minority.

I’m sure she must have just “stumbled” on those bags.

Amy December 3, 2017 at 1:41 PM

Glad someone notified security and the shoplifters were caught. I hope the value of their goods was over $950 or it will only be a misdemeanor.

It’s the Season to be TAKING, evidently. However, since we are a cite and release state, they will be back in business next week, most likely.

THE ANIMAL December 3, 2017 at 1:47 PM

Imagine that, both from Antioch………………………

Jeff December 3, 2017 at 1:50 PM

That dashiki from a town. Hopefully the cut off there section 8 now

Original G December 3, 2017 at 1:59 PM

They’ll do better next time plus they’ll be on probation.

Pony December 3, 2017 at 2:08 PM

I’m surprised they released the names.

Mary Fouts December 3, 2017 at 2:22 PM

@Loretta – Supposedly yes. I’ve read that thieves use aluminium foil to block signals from anti-theft devices.

Yet another future Mrs. Patrick

Fidget December 3, 2017 at 3:04 PM

I’m surprised they got to their car, like where is mall security? Can only CPD detain and arrest shoplifters now?

Chicken Little December 3, 2017 at 3:05 PM

The Concord PD posted a picture of her face on their Facebook page yesterday (which they quickly replaced with the photo shown here). Trust me, you’re not missing anything.

MeMe December 3, 2017 at 3:10 PM

Well, pictures tend to be released in the criminal is Caucasian. It is less likely there will be a full face pic if the criminal is other than Caucasian. Thanks California.

MisterMe December 3, 2017 at 3:11 PM

Looks like they used modeling clay to try and block rfid signals based on that last photo. Sure hope they lose their Section 8 bennies and end up living in a dumpster where these two sorry excuses belong

JD December 7, 2017 at 5:31 PM

They both live at home with loving families. Attack their choices and refrain from conjecture.

Anonogod December 3, 2017 at 3:20 PM

No picture? Bad reporter. Must know the suspects and don’t want to out them.

Find on Facebook.

NativeConcordGirl December 3, 2017 at 3:32 PM

Antioch..right. Because there are no thieves in Concord or Walnut Creek or the surrounding area. All thieves live in Antioch and Pittsburg. Get real and get your head out of your..the sand I mean.

O. M. Rodgers December 3, 2017 at 4:14 PM

Looks like they had a lined bag, “conspiracy and possessing burglary tools” so maybe over $950.00 was not required for this arrest.

Greg94528 December 3, 2017 at 4:22 PM

I hate to say it but Antioch is getting a bad reputation and while we shouldn’t judge it does honestly seem that most of the criminals in Concord , Walnut Creek, are coming from Pittsburg and Antioch.

Badge1104 December 3, 2017 at 5:33 PM

Why don`t they stay and shop (lift) in Antioch?

Taxpayer December 3, 2017 at 6:08 PM

Show their pictures! That will be the only justice they receive.

NoMoreFreeRide December 3, 2017 at 6:11 PM

@Greg94528 – Because they are!

Strad December 3, 2017 at 6:12 PM

Long time ago I bought a couple of sports coats at Macys and the sales person didn’t take one of the security tags off. Paid and walked right out of the store ,went home and found one security tag on a coat. Took the coats and receipt back to get the security tag taken off. Sales person ask how I got out of the store , I said , I just walked out. Those tags are only for people who obey the law. Those tags won’t stop anyone who really wants to steal.

WC December 3, 2017 at 6:18 PM

Both shoplifters are from Antioch?!?
I’m shocked.

Garbage extensions and cracked feet.
Hope this trash spends the new year in orange jumpsuits.

Fidget December 3, 2017 at 6:24 PM

There are criminals living in Blackhawk! Antioch vs WC there is no difference…

TIFOKCIS December 3, 2017 at 6:48 PM

She isn’t wearing Uggs?

Aspirin December 3, 2017 at 6:58 PM

The good news is they were caught.

JustSayin2 December 3, 2017 at 7:00 PM

Yay! So glad they were caught now stay out of Concord. Did they also run out of the nail sail on Monument? Sirs hope this ruins their Merry Christmas.

chuckie the troll December 3, 2017 at 7:18 PM

Is that three shirts in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

WC resident December 3, 2017 at 7:53 PM

Ban shoplifters or at least issue a prohibition order against them.

Reality December 3, 2017 at 8:24 PM

Concord has it’s problems too folks. This is not Mayberry.

Mich December 3, 2017 at 9:31 PM

Some of you are acting like Concord is some spectacular, high class town….ha reality check… concords crime rate is pretty high as well last I checked

Mich December 3, 2017 at 9:32 PM

And I’m saying it about concord citizens committing crimes… not people coming into concord from surrounding cities

Solid truth December 4, 2017 at 1:15 AM

Hate to say it but the people who mostly shoplift from sunvalley are Antioch Pittsburg residents. Mostly target from Macys and Victoria’s Secret. They come in groups of 3 with oversized shopping bags before closing times. Hope these trash bags get what they deserve.

TIFOKCIS December 4, 2017 at 6:57 AM


LOL. Thanks for the early morning laugh.

Dk December 4, 2017 at 7:08 AM

Does anybody remember when you could go to McDonalds and the workers spoke English???

PO'd December 4, 2017 at 7:44 AM

CNCPT #39 While no city is immune from contributing to the local crime rate,Pittsburg and Antioch contribute more than their fair share. They do a lot of it in central CC because there’s more opportunity for a successful take.
Also, more minorities participate than whites percentage-wise.
What school shootings are local?

Da buck stops here December 4, 2017 at 8:30 AM

George Soros is already trying to get them to register Democrat

Concord Guy December 4, 2017 at 8:46 AM

But they were just beginning their lives around…

Tim December 4, 2017 at 9:18 AM

Witnessed a robbery at Macy Sun Valley months ago. Group of five ran out the door with armloads of clothes. I know a girl was caught. Just makes me sick. No morals.

The Mamba December 4, 2017 at 11:07 AM

Nah, the criminals in Blackhawk do it differently than shoplifters from Antioch, the pay off versus the risk just isn’t worth it for those crooks.

Alfred December 4, 2017 at 1:07 PM

Kadeem Hodge who was also involved in the shoplifting was shot and killed Sunday night in Antioch

Mr pink December 4, 2017 at 9:41 PM

Bags are stuffed with allegedly.
