Two Conejo Valley residents are accused of going on a late-night crime spree in Newbury Park.
Cody Marshak of Oak Park and Kailey Brown of Thousand Oaks, both 18, were arrested this week on suspicion of burglary and theft following an investigation by the Thousand Oaks Police Department.
Police say the pair burglarized the Smoke Store, Tobacco Royale and Julie’s Alps at Jeanette’s Edelweiss as well as multiple vehicles in the predawn hours of Sept. 12.
Brown and Marshak were detained around 3:30 a.m. Sept. 12 not far from the scene of a break-in at the Smoke Store on Reino Road, police said.
According to a TOPD statement, the pair broke windows in the front door of the smoke shop but were unable to cut through a metal security gate.
During a search of Brown and Marshak’s possessions, deputies discovered a stolen credit card, later found to be taken from a vehicle in Thousand Oaks the same night, police said.
The next morning, police learned of burglaries that had taken place at Julie’s Alps German restaurant and Tobacco Royale, both in a shopping center off Newbury Road. Evidence was discovered linking Brown and Marshak to those crimes as well, police said.
TOPD believes the two may have been responsible for additional thefts from vehicles during the early morning hours of Sept. 12.
