CHICO, Calif. – The Chico Police Department conducted an unusual shoplifting arrest in Chico on Monday afternoon.

At 2:37 p.m. officers responded to a shoplifting report from Kohl’s department store on Springfield Drive.

An employee told police they had seen the suspect riding a bicycle northbound toward Humboldt Rd. on the bike path.

They arrested 30-year-old Duke Clayton at the intersection of Humboldt Rd. and Bruce Street. Officers said the Kohl’s employees positively identified Clayton as the suspect.

Police confiscated what they said was stolen property – but found more than that.

A trough of low pressure is moving over northern California this afternoon and tonight, and that will increase our wind speed and raise our area's fire danger even further. The wind will be weaker Thursday, but the smoke will get worse.
