Gucci Gave Them Away

Two suspected gang members were in jail Wednesday on suspicion of stealing about $200,000 worth of jewelry from a home in West Los  Angeles, a sheriff's captain said.

Ashton Carter of Los Angeles and Jason Willis of Inglewood were arrested  Monday afternoon in an "upscale" neighborhood in West L.A. when they  allegedly came out of a home carrying two Gucci bags, according to sheriff's  Capt. James Ritenour.

Sheriff's detectives watched Carter and Willis before they went into the  home and pursued them when they came out with the bags and got into a rented  car, Ritenour said.

Carter jumped out of the car and ran, but detectives caught both Carter  and Willis, Ritenour said.

Detectives recovered about $200,000 worth of jewelry that had been taken  from the home, he said.

Carter, 26, and Willis, 21, were held today at the sheriff's Temple  Station in lieu of $50,000 bail each, according to jail records. They were  scheduled to appear at the airport courthouse on La Cienega Boulevard some time  this morning.

Ritenour said detectives are looking other similar burglaries and  encouraged anyone with information to call the sheriff's Major Crimes Bureau at  562-762-7019.
