Two brothers have been arrested for allegedly shoplifting from a Chandler where one of them was an employee.

The Chandler Police Department said one of the brothers was a loss prevention employee at Kohl's at 1430 S. Arizona Ave. and helped cover up his brother's shoplifting.

Police said it started in February 2012, with the company discovering it during an audit.

The former employee Rafael Lopez-Saumell, 37, and his brother, Yuri Lopez-Samuell, 40, have been charged with multiple counts of trafficking in stolen property and organized retail theft.
