Theft At Chukchansi Casino Resulting In Two Felony Arrests

COARSEGOLD — Two individuals were arrested yesterday after allegedly stealing a bag of electronics from an individual at the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino.

Around 1 p.m. on Feb. 21, Madera County Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding a theft at the casino.

Deputy Michael Murphy responded to the location and took a report from the victim detailing the property that had been stolen, which included a bag containing computer, laptop, tools, and computer accessories.

Deputy Murphy learned a female subject took a bag from the casino floor when the victim’s attention was distracted and had already left the casino with a male subject.

Deputy Murphy located the female suspect inside the casino after she returned a short time later and detained her for questioning, says the Sheriff’s Office. The male suspect also returned to the casino and was detained for questioning as well.

Deputy Murphy identified the suspects as 47-year-old Kellie Brittain and 39-year-old Robin Dietrich, both of Fresno.

Brittain and Dietrich were taken into custody, transported and booked in at Madera County Department of Corrections without incident for felony charges of grand theft and receiving stolen property.

All of the stolen items were recovered and returned to the victim.
