PORTLAND, Ore. – Two people were arrested Friday night after police said they were involved in "flash robbing" at the Lloyd Center mall Thursday night.

Police spotted the suspects' getaway vehicle, a silver SUV with Texas license plates, in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Northeast Portland shortly after 6 p.m. They pulled it over at Northeast 22nd Avenue and Morgan Street.

A police officer who responded to the thefts during the flash robbery at the Macy's in the Lloyd Center arrived at the traffic stop and identified the driver as a person seen on surveillance video.

Police arrested the driver, 18-year-old Rosaayla Campbell, and one of three passengers, 18-year-old Rasool Islam, accusing them both of first-degree organized retail theft and theft in the first degree.

The other two passengers were released without charge.

Police said the investigation is continuing and there could be more arrests made in the case.

Police said about $1,000 worth of jeans were stolen from the Macy's, and store security guards told police it was a group of five or six boys and girls that were involved.
