Chino Hills police jailed a 27-year-old woman Saturday morning on suspicion of robbery after she was suspected of stealing a bottle of vodka and claimed to have a gun when confronted by a store employee.

Ilyana Contreras of Chino Hills was booked on $100,000 bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.  Deputies went to the Rite Aid store at 4200 Chino Hills Parkway at 8:22 a.m. on a report an employee was robbed, said Deputy F. Figueroa.

“The employee reported a suspect walked into the store and concealed a bottle of vodka in her purse,” the deputy said.

When the employee asked the woman about the bottle, she reached into her purse, said she had a gun and not to stop her.

At that time, the woman ran out of the store. A gun was not seen, Deputy Figueroa said.

Jail records show Ms. Contreras was arrested at 1:18 p.m. and booked on one count of robbery.

A court date has not been set. Anyone with information can call Chino Hills Police at 364-2000 or the WeTip Hotline at (800) 782-7463.

Ilyana Contreras has only stolen a bottle of vodka but she is being treated severely.Source is going to help me in my research paper. I am requesting to the higher authorities of our justice department of taking notice of that very specified case.
