Carlos Carrillo

On May 17, 2019, at approximately 11:30 PM, the Riverside Sheriff’s Department Street Racing and Takeover Enforcement Team were monitoring reports of street racing activity in the area of Etiwanda Avenue and Cantu Galleano Ranch Road, city of Jurupa Valley. Shortly after arriving in the area, deputies observed two vehicles northbound on Etiwanda Avenue occupying both lanes of traffic engaged in an illegal street race at a high rate of speed. Deputies initiated a traffic stop on the vehicles involved in the illegal street race, ultimately stopping one as the second vehicle fled. The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody without incident.

The driver of the vehicle, Carlos Carrillo, 24, a resident of Azusa, was arrested for operating a vehicle in an illegal street race and later booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center. Carrillo was scheduled to be arraigned on May 21, 2019, but posted bail and will be arraigned at a later date. Carrillo’s vehicle was impounded for 30 days as a result of being used in the illegal street race. 

Illegal street racing, street takeovers, and sideshows are a dangerous, destructive, and far too often a deadly event in Riverside County. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, in partnership with local allied agencies, are taking a zero-tolerance approach to this illegal activity in an effort to reduce the cost to taxpayers having to repair the damages caused by these events, but most importantly to reduce the danger to the public caused by the participants of these events who often drive their vehicles with wanton disregard for public safety. Participants, aiders and abettors, and retailers supplying and installing the illegal equipment often found on the vehicles at these events will be identified through collaborative law enforcement efforts and prosecuted for the multitude of crimes resulting from these illegal acts.              

Anyone with information pertaining to locations in your area where this type of illegal activity is taking place, or with any information pertaining to illegal street racing, sideshows, or planned street take overs is encouraged to contact Sergeant Dan Ponder at the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station (951) 955-2600 or at Riverside Sheriff’s Dispatch (951) 776-1099.
