On August 02, 2019, at approximately 11:00 p.m., Riverside Sheriff’s Department S.T.R.E.E.T began receiving reports of a large group of vehicles travelling throughout western San Bernardino county shutting down public roads performing speed exhibitions and driving recklessly. Deputies from S.T.R.E.E.T. responded to areas frequented by people involved in this illegal activity, and located the group arriving in the area of Wineville X Harrell, Jurupa Valley. S.T.R.E.E.T. immediately began enforcement action against vehicles performing exhibitions of speed to disperse the gathering.

A deputy assigned to S.T.R.E.E.T. located four vehicles that attempted to flee the area onto private property. As the deputy approached the four vehicles, one of the suspect vehicles made multiple attempts at ramming the deputy’s vehicle. Additional deputies and officers assigned to S.T.R.E.E.T. responded to assist, taking the suspect into custody without further incident. It was discovered that a 17-year-old juvenile was also in the suspect’s vehicle during his alleged attempts to ram the deputy’s vehicle. The occupants of the additional three vehicles were also detained, at which time one was found to be in possession of metal knuckles.

As a result of the investigation nine adults later identified as Ruby Acero, 27, La Puente, Jerry Andrade, 20, Compton, Bryan Herrera, 21, Fontana, Dilmer Herrera, 26, Fontana, Jose Lopez, 18, Bell, Viridiana Orozco-Ibarra, 20, Fontana, Daniel Ortiz, 18, Bell, William Pulido, 26, La Puente, and Jesus Salazar, 21, Norwalk, were all arrested for charges related to aiding and abetting and exhibition of speed. Additionally, Salazar was charged with attempted assault with a deadly weapon as well as child endangerment, and Bryan Herrera was additionally charged with weapons possession. All nine were booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center for the said charges, and their vehicles impounded for 30 days. The juvenile, who was found to have not suffered injuries in the incident, was released to her parents. The case will be referred to the District Attorney’s office for prosecution.
