PHOENIX — The Scottsdale Police Department on Tuesday announced the arrest of two more people linked to the looting at the Fashion Square mall last year.

No stolen property was recovered from the incident.

The other suspect, Rochel, was identified through her attempts to sell items stolen from Montblanc.

Police recovered stolen property valued at $6,370.

Authorities have now arrested 57 people in connection to the night of vandalism and have returned over $241,000 worth of merchandise to the businesses, according to the release.

The Fashion Square closed after the incident and din’t reopen until June 10, with Urban Outfitters, the Apple Store and Neiman Marcus being among the stores that sustained damage.
