Four Juveniles, Oakland Woman Arrested For Grand Theft At Dick’s Sporting Goods In Pleasant Hill

An 18-year-old woman and four juveniles were arrested for grand theft at Dick’s Sporting Goods in Pleasant Hill on Wednesday, according to the Pleasant Hill Police Dept.

The following information is from the Pleasant Hill Police Dept.:

Suspect: Zahra McCockran (18 years of age), 4 juveniles (names withheld due to age).

On Wednesday May 22 at approximately 7:41 p.m., Pleasant Hill Police officers were conducting patrol in the area of Dick’s Sporting Goods.

An officer identified an occupied vehicle backed into a parking stall near the store’s entrance/exit doors, which appeared suspicious based on past trends involving retail thefts.

As the officer checked on the vehicle, several subjects began quickly exiting the store, carrying numerous items of merchandise.

Once the officer was seen, these subjects dropped the merchandise and fled back through the store. They were eventually detained for a theft investigation, based on the circumstances.

The fifth subject in the parked vehicle also fled, but was detained a short distance away.

An initial investigation at the store led to confirmation that a theft was committed collectively by the aforementioned group.

All were arrested, including Zahra McCockran of Oakland (18 years of age) and 4 juveniles (2 males, 2 females – names withheld due to age).

McCockran was booked into the county jail on counts of 487 PC, grand theft, and 182 PC, conspiracy to commit theft.

The juveniles were ultimately released to parents/guardians.

Representatives for Dick’s Sporting Goods believe this group, or a portion thereof, may be involved in other organized thefts at Dicks locations within the bay area.

This aspect of the case is still being investigated and further details are not available at this time.

Anyone with additional information regarding this case is encouraged to contact the PHPD Investigations Division at 925-288-4630.

Zahra is actually a good kid. Hate how they made her out to be the ring leader based on age. Saw her at the fam bbq the other day, she’s doing great and will continue to do so. Don’t let them keep you down bby girl!!!

Anonymous –
Seriously? Good kid? I don’t think good kids go into stores to steal. And it is not like they tried to hide something small…I believe “Grand Theft” is over $950…
POS kid if you ask me…POS parenting as well for all of them.

The film shows just how well she continues to do.The Fairfield film has her calling everyone a” b&*#&” as she tries to pull away from them with an armful of clothing.Are people actually taking new clothes to their drug dealer for trading?

Anon May 23, 2019 at 7:05 PM

I guess the Acting thing didn’t work out for Zahra.
Orange is the new Black.

Sounds like they will be going to UOP–University of Prison

The top photo looks like they’re still wearing a diaper 🙁

jon s May 23, 2019 at 9:33 PM

They are not worried since theres no guns in the store….

The Mamba May 24, 2019 at 8:56 AM

There’s all kinds of guns and crossbows upstairs, have you ever visited?

Rob May 24, 2019 at 11:51 AM

Yes, that’s a genius idea – start shooting in a store for folks who are stealing merchandise – one innocent person injured and you just lost many, many times more money than will be stolen in 10+ years….

jon s May 24, 2019 at 1:46 PM

Nah,theyre not selling guns anymore,theyve snowflaked.

Common Sense May 23, 2019 at 9:51 PM

Profile! Profile! Profile people! We all do it anyways and this is the reason why. Good job PHPD!

concord ygnacio May 24, 2019 at 8:24 AM

I have to call out you outrageous post.

Your post is racist ad disgusting, to be honest. There is no evidence that people of color commit crimes at a higher rate than people of other races. And even if they do, that doesn’t mean every person of color is prone to commit crime. You’re unfairly targeting people who don’t deserve it.

Just the other day, there was a story here about white and Asian people stealing from Safeway. Why didn’t you call those races out for profiling?

There is a post just today here of a white man committing animal abuse. Why wasn’t his race called out?

You need to retract your post.

Googlar May 24, 2019 at 8:30 AM

“There is no evidence that people of color commit crimes at a higher rate than people of other races”

Yes there is, the evidence is called FBI statistics and 13% of the population commits over 50% of the violent crime.

Fred P. May 24, 2019 at 8:54 AM

@concord ygnacio – You need to retract YOUR post! Not once were the races of the perpetrators identified. NOT ONCE!

The term “profiling” has been hijacked by the left to mean only racial profiling – it covers a HELL of a lot more than just race. And you’re putting YOUR interpretation on common sense’ statement. In other words, you’re blaming common sense for YOUR interpretation!

From Merriam Webster – “the act or process of extrapolating information about a person based on known traits or tendencies; specifically : the act of suspecting or targeting a person on the basis of observed characteristics or behavior.”

From the Cambridge English Dictionary – 1. the activity of collecting information about someone, especially a criminal, in order to give a description of them 2. the activity of collecting important and useful details about someone or something: .

Re-read the ENTIRE blog, snowflake. There’s more to life than reading the “urban dictionary.”

Fred P. May 24, 2019 at 8:59 AM

concord ygnacio – couple of other things….

About the thefts from safeway – again, NOBODY called out the race of anyone on this post. You’re the opnly one who mentioned race.

You asked why the race of the white guy wasn’t called out… Did you ever think to look at the picture??????

You idiots always playing the race card make me ill.

Now YOU retract YOUR statements, pinhead! Stick with the facts and don’t read stuff into posts that isn’t there!

Back to your safe space….

Happy Camper May 24, 2019 at 9:04 AM

Sounds like Concord Ygnacio is also guilty profiling and making assumptions based on stereotypes. I can’t identify the race of the juveniles from the photos. The article doesn’t mention their race. What makes you assume they are black Concord Ygnacio? Because of the type of crime committed? Because they are from Oakland?

Dr. Jellyfinger May 24, 2019 at 9:17 AM

“There is no evidence that people of color commit crimes at a higher rate than people of other races”

U.S. Prison Population as of 2017:

White 436,500
Black 475,900
Hispanic 336,500

U.S. Population Percentages:

White 60.7%
Hispanic or Latino 18.1%
African American 13.4%

Maybe “people of color” just get caught more often than “people of other races”?

MikeyV May 24, 2019 at 9:29 AM

” There is no evidence that people of color commit crimes at a higher rate than people of other races. ”

LMFAO, you can’t be serious? Are you blind?????????????

concord ygnacio May 24, 2019 at 9:44 AM

Sorry for my typos in the post above.

Rob May 24, 2019 at 11:54 AM

Well – if we just started arresting white folks in the same percentages are we do black folks for drugs those numbers would start skyrocketing for white folks…

And then factor in the different in prosecution rates for the same crimes vs. race…

The problem with such simplistic high-level statistics is that it makes it sound like you don’t understand how it all works – but of course – we know you do.

Common Sense May 24, 2019 at 11:54 AM

I never mentioned race. Your liberal mind only thinks that way. I simply said profile

Dr. Jellyfinger May 24, 2019 at 1:21 PM

Excuse me S…. but that link does not back up CY’s statement… it does just the opposite.

CY said “There is no evidence that people of color commit crimes at a higher rate than people of other races”

A higher “rate”…. that means percentage, not total offenses overall.

Do the math…. it is what it is… sorry if you don’t like the stats but it does not make it any less true.

jon s May 24, 2019 at 2:06 PM

Rob,you seem to be in complete denial of what is obvious.Trying to defend this is futile.

Joatmeal May 24, 2019 at 6:25 PM

Based on what I see posted on Claycord, about 90% of the store robberies are committed by African Americans and about 90% of molestation’s and animal cruelty crimes are committed by whites and Latinos.

concord ygnacio May 24, 2019 at 6:42 PM

Thanks for your support S.!

Dr. Jellyfinger May 24, 2019 at 9:17 PM

Nevermind that all S did was shoot another hole in your boat……
it’s the thought that counts!

Good job PHPD

George May 23, 2019 at 10:20 PM

Great work Pleasant Hill Police Officers!

Gititogether May 23, 2019 at 11:05 PM

“juveniles were ultimately released to parents/guardians”…and what then? Sent for remedial training?

Smee May 23, 2019 at 11:11 PM

Way to keep an eye out, PHPD!!
I hope the juviniles will also face legal consequences!

RANDOM TASK May 24, 2019 at 7:56 AM

ahhh nice to see home schooling of future dem system suckers

and yes nice police work …actually doing their job and investigating suspicious behavior …
wish concord police were not handcuffed by politicians and sanctuary policies for criminals
would like to see them kick some crime to the curb

Concord74 May 24, 2019 at 7:57 AM

“…names and identify withheld because they are juveniles….” Why bother with LEO doing their jobs when the general public have no way to ID these miscreants if they had got away? Secondly, when they get their wrist slapped and released they will be doing this again!! What makes these politicians thinks that these miscreant have a conscience!!??

Kalifornia Native May 24, 2019 at 8:53 AM

Used to be there were consequences for bad behavior, now, not so much.

WC Resident May 24, 2019 at 8:54 AM

@concord ygnacio – What is your explanation for that people of color are 12% of the U.S. population but account for 37% of the prison population?

The Mamba May 24, 2019 at 8:56 AM

Great job PHPD, the backward parking is a dead giveaway!

RANDOM TASK May 24, 2019 at 9:52 AM

well I would say yes commit crime get caught red handed and you made that choice

we don’t know if these kids made the choice or were forced

but maybe by addressing this theory more maybe a clause to let people know in the future since this is happening and people know juveniles cant be sent to prison but if you sit in a vehicle and send children into a store to steal they will be on the news full faced and your welfare will be revoked your school will be notified and you will go to prison for theft and mistreatment of children

but but …..since this is sanctuary driven political agenda gender separated demifornia all crimes are subject to the new DA policy of plea down and community service so ….business owners either shut down or move out of state or get relly expensive insurance because its open season and no politician is going to save you from being robbed jus the opposite and the voters legalizing theft is a stab in the back for you as well

so good job PH police too bad the state does not back you up

caskydiver May 24, 2019 at 9:59 AM

let the wrist-slapping penalties begin….

Jeff May 24, 2019 at 10:41 AM

Nice work PHPD……….LASD 108RS

East bay Native May 24, 2019 at 10:58 AM

She committed a crime, she got caught and the police have identified her. She needs to be incarcerate for a while, normal law abiding bay area citizens are tiring of our communities being fleeced by the low life.

jon s May 24, 2019 at 2:53 PM

Theres a very good film of the PH crime on FB,and the one from Fairfiled has sound too,which definitely helps identify who they are.Peaople in denial,please accept the facts.Realism/photos/film/sound isn’t racism.

The Wizard May 24, 2019 at 3:54 PM

It would be cheaper to have a armed guard watching. Post a sign…Any fare evaders will be shot…. Problem solved

chuckie the troll May 24, 2019 at 4:24 PM

No doubt this will be used in her college application to prove that she comes from a “disadvantaged background”.

American Citizen May 30, 2019 at 12:50 PM

This was just another instance of thugs taking advantage of liberal laws regarding crime. If we did the same thing they did in Muslim countries like chop off hands for shoplifting, I guarantee you the crime rate would go down. It’s too bad Pleasant Hill PD didn’t beat the tar out of these little monsters. And let’s face it, these weren’t students from Acalanes or Northgate. Oakland is all we need to hear to determine who they were.
