GLENDALE, Calif. (KABC) -- Another arrest has been made in connection to the viral flash-mob robbery at the Yves Saint Laurent store at the Americana at Brand mall in Glendale.

Brianna Jimenez, 21, was arrested in L.A. near Slauson Avenue on Wednesday, according to a post on X by Glendale police.

Thieves were captured on video fleeing a high-end clothing store at the Americana in Glendale after stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in merchandise.

The social media post also included an image of 23-year-old Ivan Ramirez, who was seen with his hands behind his back and sitting next to Jimenez on a curb.

Ramirez was arrested last month for the same crime, but was released after being cited.

Roughly 30 people were involved in the robbery, which occurred on Aug. 8. Bystander video of the incident showed a group of thieves fleeing the high-end shop with stolen merchandise, which authorities said was valued at approximately $300,000.
