Yucaipa officials searching for 2 suspects who stole keys from gym bag, broke into home

A suspect authorities said broke into a Yucaipa gym with a fake name and stole personal belongings from a locked gym locker

Police in Yucaipa are searching for two women after they say one of them broke into a gym locker, stole a woman's keys, drove off with their car, then broke into her house with a second suspect later that night.

The incident happened on Dec. 19, 2022. Police said a woman entered the Fitness 19 on Yucaipa Boulevard that night, using a fake name to get in. That woman then broke into a locked gym locker and took a woman's belongings, including her car and house keys. The suspect then left the gym, and drove away in the victim's car. Police said they found the car abandoned in a nearby parking lot.

Later that night just after 7 p.m., police said two women drove to the victim's Yucaipa home. The second suspect, police said, used the stolen house keys to unlock the door and go inside. Police said the victim's mom was home when they entered and she confronted the suspect at the door. Both of the suspects then left.
