Chino Hills police jailed a 27-year-old woman Saturday morning on suspicion of robbery after she was suspected of stealing a bottle of alcohol 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, the suspect 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.

I reckon that Ilyana Contreras is innocent and that matter has not been investigated properly. Students always prefer to read authentic reviews on source about essay writing. There was no gun so the accusation of robbery looks like a false claim. Police should think of reopening this case.
