Roseville police said that on Oct. 1, they received a call from the Hugo Boss store at the Galleria mall. Police were told that a family that frequently visited their store was back and that it appeared the adults distracted a clerk while their young daughter took a watch.

On Saturday afternoon, the adults were back at the store. This time, officers arrested them.

Officers said the man, Leo Anthony Miller, 35, and Terry Ziko, 35, both of Carmichael were in possession of false identification. Further investigation led police to believe the couple bought a pickup from a dealer at the Roseville Automall using fake identification.
