During the month of October, 2017, officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department Special Enforcement Team (SET) investigated five burglaries which occurred at California Department of Forestry and Fire (Cal-Fire) Stations throughout the city of Moreno Valley.  During these burglaries, the suspect stole multiple items including electronic devices, uniforms, and personal items. 

On Wednesday, November 14, 2017, the Moreno Valley Police Department Special Enforcement Team (SET) investigated a residential burglary which occurred in the 24000 block of Dunlavy Court, Moreno Valley where in excess of $4000.00 worth of property was stolen.  During the investigation, SET members discovered the suspect in this case was possibly the same suspect involved in the Fire Station burglaries.  SET Officers responded to an address in the 24000 block on Dunlavy Court and searched the location for additional evidence.  While at the location, SET officers located stolen items from the residential burglary on Dunlavy Court, and items from all five Fire Stations.  Additional evidence was located linking the suspect to the crimes.  The stolen items were returned to victims. 

Hector Velazquez (28-years-old), resident of Moreno Valley, was arrested and booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center. 

Anyone with information related to this case is encouraged to contact the Robbery and Burglary Suppression Team at the Moreno Valley Police Station by calling (951) 486-6700.
