Suspects arrested after alleged repeat theft from cosmetic store


Lacey Police Department (LPD) arrested two suspects allegedly being involved in two thefts at the Ulta Beauty store on Marvin Road NE.

In the afternoon of April 24, the store manager called law enforcement and reported a female suspect who had placed perfumes into her purse with the help of a male accomplice.

The suspects triggered the store alarm and fled on foot when they bypassed checkout points without paying.

Video footage captured the female suspect as a woman, approximately 5'6", with her hair in a bun, wearing a black jacket, and gray pants, and carrying a large gray bag.

The male suspect, described as having shoulder-length dreadlocks, was wearing a white zip-up jacket and orange pants.

Both wore white medical masks.

Two days later, in the afternoon of April 26, LPD was again dispatched to a theft in progress at the same location.

The manager reported that the same suspects were attempting another theft.

Officers arrived and detained the male suspect, identified as Calvin Turner, while the female suspect, Lisandre Dowell-Ennis, was able to flee the scene.

The staff recognized the two suspects as the same suspects from two days ago as she approached the two to assist them during the first theft. The attendant said the same man approached her and sought her assistance during the second incident.

The staff then informed the manager who checked the CCTV footage and “observed the female lifting up the glass cases and concealing numerous fragrances in a bag that she brought in with her,” prompting them to contact 911.

After the male suspect was detained, the female was spotted in the parking lot and was also detained.

Both suspects were identified as the culprits in both theft incidents, based on the witnesses’ statements and the CCTV footage.

The stolen goods from the first theft amounted to $2,621, and the second attempted theft involved items worth $3,624.

Both suspects were booked into Thurston County Jail for second-degree theft, and second-degree attempted theft charges were referred to the Prosecutor for the April 26 incident.
