May 14, 2024


Police officers arrested two Fresno men for stealing from the Paso Robles Target store on Monday. 

At approximately 4:04 p.m., Paso Robles police learned of a theft at Target. Officers investigated and determined Christopher Arreola, 28, and Brennan Visser, 42, had stolen approximately $2,000 worth of items from the store, according to the Paso Robles Police Department.

Police say Arreola fled the scene in a black Ford Focus while Visser fled by foot. 

When officers attempted to stop Arreola’s car, he rear-ended a vehicle, then fled by foot. Officers chased Arreola on foot and took him into custody. 

No one suffered injuries in the collision. Officers searched the Ford Focus and found a small amount of narcotics, burglary tools and stolen property. 

Authorities booked Arreola in San Luis Obispo County Jail on a range of charges including felony theft, possession of narcotics, warrants, possession of burglary tools and driving under the influence of drugs. 

Police located Visser in an adjacent parking lot, where they arrested him without incident. Officers booked Visser in SLO County Jail.

Arreola currently remains in custody with no bail amount set, according to the county sheriff’s office website. Visser remains in jail with his bail set at $20,000. 

An investigation into the case remains ongoing. Investigators ask that anyone who has additional information about the case contact the Paso Robles Police Department.

It is good to know that our local law enforcement knows a law enforcement practice, it has to be over $1000 before they can be processed. My opinion is that all retail theft should be enforceable. There are streets to sweep, river bottoms to be cleaned, etc.

Stores should just add a grand to the price of everything and then take it off as a discount upon payment, then any theft would be felonious.

Wonderful display of what the bottom end of the I.Q. Bell Curve looks like. Too stupid to not realize the driver’s name was on the car registration.

Well hopefully they put these two assholes behind bars for a good 10 to 20 years. That might cool their jets.

With the new highway we can expect more of what we don’t want. There should be a out of town surcharge, paid for by the county of residence. This is worthy of a new state law so that nobody wants to travel for crime.

How much extra “surcharge” tax should be added to stolen goods?

There should be a checkpoint at Golden Hill and 46 to turn away Valley folk apt to make mischief.
