Chico police have arrested two women they say robbed a jewelry store in downtown Chico Thursday afternoon.

Police say Summer Dorman, 29, and Erin Beane, 19, were arrested less than an hour after they walked into Kirk’s Jewelry and then ran out with a $1500 bracelet.

Witnesses told police the women had fled in a Subaru, which was spotted by authorities headed southbound on Highway 99. Officers stopped the car just south of State Route 149 and found Dorman and Beane in possession of the stolen jewelry.

Traffic on Highway 99 was backed up for about 20 minutes while officers pulled over and then searched the suspects.

Dorman and Beane were positively identified by witnesses and booked into the Butte County Jail on suspicion of robbery.
