Court files suggest Nhu Quynh Truong is a persistent shoplifter.
Most recently the young woman, only 23 years old, has been charged with fifteen felonies related to retail thefts.
Criminal history for Truong is documented since she was a juvenile in 2007, when she was first prosecuted for theft. The next year, in 2008, she got three separate theft convictions. In 2009 she got three more, one while out on bail. In June 2011 Truong was convicted of two more felonies, listed as “burglaries” of retail stores.
In past paperwork, Truong listed her home address on Westonhill Drive in the Mira Mesa area.
Superior Court Judge Harry Powazek has ordered the young woman held without bail as she awaits trial for her most recent charges, including one felony grand theft.
In case she is released from custody, Nhu Quynh Truong has been ordered to stay away from a list of stores, including: Camilla’s Women’s and Men’s Clothing, Surf Ride, Adventure16, Sun Diego, Tobi Blatt, Francesca’s, and Bath & Body Works.
Truong’s private defense attorney has requested that a psychologist be allowed access to the young felon while she is housed in Las Colinas women’s jail in Santee.
Nhu Quynh Truong is next due in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse on August 20.
