Two people were arrested after a disturbance at a convenience store in Chico. A man and a woman entered the 7-11 store on Forest Avenue around after 9:15 Wednesday night and payed for gas. Not long after, employees confronted the man, identified as 18-year-old Edwin Mendez for allegedly attempting to shoplift items. The woman, identified as 21-year-old Angela Noble-Cortez reportedly got angry and demanded her money back.
