Four people in California were recently arrested for the alleged theft of nearly $2 million worth of merchandise from 43 different stores, The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Jaime Mendoza, 36, and Maritza Guerrero, 31, both of Anaheim, were taken into custody after authorities saw them commit at least one theft and deliver the stolen goods to a mobile home, law enforcement officials told the paper.

Additional merchandise was found in four self-storage units, and authorities needed multiple trucks to haul it away.
