SOUTH EL MONTE (CBSLA.com) — More than $115,000 worth of stolen plastic products have been recovered at two Southland locations, authorities announced Thursday.
Members of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Task Force discovered the products Wednesday evening at Broadway Plastics, located in the 2000 block of Lee Avenue in South El Monte.
“There, stolen trademarked plastic products were being stowed, ground and primed to be sold. Some of the products were still intact, while some had already been ground,” Sgt. Nabeel Mitry said in a statement.
Authorities also found more stolen goods at a Lynwood residence located in the 35oo block of Virginia Street.
The home was being used to stow some of the stolen trademarked plastic products, Mitry said.
Eight people were arrested, including six men and two women. They have been charged with recovering known stolen property.
“The individuals were comprised of five family members, two employees and the owner of the business,” Mitry added.
The investigation is on-going.
