PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Six people have been indicted by a grand jury in a wide-ranging organized retail theft scheme that targeted several stores throughout the metro.

KOIN 6 News first reported in September that police recovered an estimated $50,000 in stolen goods from a home in the 4200 block of Southeast 90th. At the time, police described the evidence as “a large cache of suspected stolen property.”

Detectives with the Portland Police Bureau had to catalog the items and the case was forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office.

On Tuesday, a grand jury handed up a six-page indictment.

The indictment charges six people:

  • Jabril Stressla Robert Coleman
  • Cache B. Coleman
  • Joccrystal Johnl Jackson
  • Johnkia J. Jackson
  • Derisha Lynay Sutton
  • Brittany Linda Jones

According to the indictment, detectives have taken 22 separate reports. Thefts are alleged to have occurred from the Nike Outlet Store, Sephora, Ulta, DSW, Midk Beauty Supply, Walgreens, Kmart, BCBG, Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, and the Children’s Place.

Jabril Stressla Robert Coleman is charged with two counts of organized retail theft, six counts of first-degree theft, seven counts of secnod-degree theft, and one count of third-degree theft.

Cache B. Coleman is charged with three counts each of first-degree and second-degree theft.

Joccrystal Jackson is charged with one count of organized retail theft, four counts of first-degree theft, six counts of second-degree theft, and one count of third-degree theft.

Johnkia J. Jackson is charged with two counts of organized retail theft, eight counts of first-degree theft, nine counts of second-degree theft, and one count of third degree theft.

Derisha Lynay Sutton is charged with two counts of first-degree theft, three counts of second-degree theft, and one count of third-degree theft.

Brittany Linda Jones is charged with one count each of first and second-degree theft.

As of Wednesday morning, only Jabril Stressla Robert Coleman remains in custody. He is scheduled to appear in circuit court today.

Warrants have been issued for the other five people. Police said they would encourage the five outstanding people to turn themselves into any local law enforcement agency. People with immediate information on where the five outstanding suspects are located are asked to call 503.823.3333.

Records show that 26 people provided evidence to the grand jury investigating the group.

Earlier this month, Johnkia Jackson and Joccrystal Jackson were arrested in Lane County on allegations that they stole more than 50 Fitbit activity trackers from two businesses in Eugene.
