The Irvine LensCrafter store was hit around 1:30 a.m., which prompted an all-points bulletin that had cops around Orange County watching other stores. Sure enough, about a half hour later, the Brea LensCrafter was smashed into and burgled, leading to a chase on the 57 freeway that resulted in the trio's arrest.
The Orange County Sheriff's Department later disclosed the Lake Forest LensCrafter suffered the same indignity the same morning, but so far the suspects have only been arrested for the Brea job.
A HUGE question still surrounds this case. however. Just after 7 this morning, KTLA/Channel 5 reporter Wendy Burch is shown in front of the Brea store, next to a sign advertising new glasses in about an hour, in front of the boarded-up door and on top of broken pieces of glass.
