Two people are in jail after being convicted of robbing the same Conejo Valley beauty supply store multiple times.

Prosecutors say duo stole more than $30,000 worth of merchandise.

A duo from Southern California apparently thought they’d come up with the perfect crime. Prosecutors say they stole fragrances not once, not twice, but four times from the same Conejo Valley beauty supply store over a six month period.

The total loss was estimated at $35,000.

But, prosecutors say during the fourth robbery last February, they stole items which included a tracking device. Coronell Williams And Emonnie Walden were followed, and arrested.

They pled guilty to a variety of theft-related charges. Walden received a three year sentence, and Williams a one year sentence.
