The compiled information obtained from the numerous vehicle burglary criminal reports, coupled with video surveillance provided by the Amazon Fulfillment Center, which captured images of the suspect committing the crime, physical description and the vehicle used during the commission of the string of burglaries provided information to obtain a possible identification of the suspect.
Furthermore, it was discovered that the suspect conducted similar vehicle burglaries dating back to May 2019, in the city of Eastvale. During the lengthy investigation SET deputies obtained significant evidence and identified the adult male.
On Thursday October 3, 2019, deputies from Jurupa Valley Station’s Special Enforcement Team located and detained the suspect in an apartment complex located on the 10000 block of Church St, Rancho Cucamonga. A search warrant was written for a residence and a vehicle located in the apartment complex. Several pieces of stolen cellular telephones, computer laptops, purses, duffle bags, credit cards, clothing used during the commission of the burglaries and other items linking the suspect to the burglaries were located during the service of this search warrant.
