Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies arrested three men, two juveniles and one adult for allegedly walking out of Foster Donuts without paying for items they had taken.
Deputies responded to Fosters Donuts in the 2600 block of Foothill Boulevard after an employee reported that three boys entered the store and allegedly stole drinks.
The employee reportedly told deputies that three boys came into the store at 5 p.m. and asked her for the price of a bowl of soup. While she was occupied with one of the suspects she noticed another suspect went to get a can of tea and another suspect grabbed another cold drink. They walked out of the store. The employee followed them and asked them to pay for the items taken. They were belligerent and continued to their vehicle. When she continued to insist they pay, one of the suspects returned a can that had been taken but the other one continued to be belligerent.
