A man who authorities believe has been a part of a theft ring that has been stealing high-end coolers from retailers and then profiting by selling them online has been arrested as one of the suspects involved in the operation.

After a fire alarm at the Academy Sports and Outdoors store was triggered on February 8, the employees realized that approximately $1200 worth of coolers went missing from their inventory. The surveillance video in the establishment showed two men taking Yeti brand coolers out of the emergency exit door.

The Selma police were notified and began looking into the incident, and they released a bulletin alerting law enforcement agencies throughout Texas. Detectives in Fort Worth reported that they recognized the suspects, who are believed to be the same men that were a part of several other thefts of the same nature in eight other counties; six in Texas and two in Louisiana.

According to prosecutors, 29 year-old Rico Christopher Clayton, of Carson, had allegedly recruited a woman to participate in prostitution on February 8th. He allegedly advertised her sex services online. On that same day, officers on the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force had responded to an online ad and arranged a meeting with the woman.

Clayton was allegedly seen dropping the woman off at a Fullerton motel where the meeting had been arranged with the undercover officer. Clayton had also allegedly made calls and sent text messages to the woman indicating that he was pimping her. Clayton was out on bail for another pimping charge in Los Angeles at the time.

He was charged on Monday with one felony count of pimping and pandering. He is facing sentencing enhancements for committing the crime while out on bail in addition to a previous strike conviction for burglary in 2007. If found guilty, Clayton faces up to 15 years in prison, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
