California Senate Democrats: Locking Up Deodorant, Unlocking Crime

Senate Democrats reject Republican Amendment on Felony Theft, Siding with Career Criminals Yet Again 

Sacramento, CA- Once again, California Senate Republicans offered Senate Democrats a critical lifeline to restoring some accountability to this state, and once again, to no surprise, they rejected our amendment that would have held repeat retail theft criminals accountable for their crimes.

“Welcome to CRIMEafornia where deodorant and toothpaste are locked up, but thieves are not,” said Senator Janet Nguyen (R-Huntington Beach). “For too long, far too many of my Democrat colleagues have believed retail theft is a victimless crime requiring only compassion and kind words to overcome. The Democrats’ way of thinking has emboldened thieves to believe that there are no consequences to their actions.”

California Senate Republicans’ amendment, aimed at enhancing public safety, would have given district attorneys the green light to go after serial thieves and charge them with a felony if they have two or more prior theft-related convictions, or other serious, violent or sexual convictions.

“CRIMEafornia’s Senate Democrats have spoken: Lock up your toiletries, not repeat retail thieves,” said Senate Minority Leader Brian W. Jones (R-San Diego). “Retail theft isn’t just a loss of product – it’s a loss of revenue, resources, and safety. It’s time for accountability, protecting law-abiding residents, and ensuring a safer California.”

Senator Brian W. Jones represents the 40th Senate District which includes the Cities of Escondido, Poway, San Marcos, Santee, San Diego City communities of Carmel Mountain Ranch, Mira Mesa, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Peñasquitos, Scripps Ranch, Sorrento Valley, and University City, along with the San Diego County unincorporated communities of 4S Ranch, Alpine, Bonsall, Fallbrook, Lakeside, Pine Valley, Rainbow, Ramona, and Valley Center.

Senator Janet Nguyen returns to the California State Senate, representing the 36th Senate District covering Orange County. More recently, Senator Nguyen served in the California State Assembly from 2020-2022 and in the California State Senate from 2014-2018.
