Written Date: 03/22/19 Time: 2:30pm
Incident Date: 03/21/19 Time: 3:20pm

Reporting Officer: Sergeant Steve Favero
File Number(s): MV190800199


On Thursday, March 21, 2019 at approximately 1520 hours, officers assigned to the Moreno Valley Police Department responded to a possible child abduction regarding a 10-year old male who failed to report to the after-school care program. Officers arrived at the school and learned the 10-year old male juvenile who was living with a foster family was last seen leaving the school campus at the end of the normal school day with a woman who resembled his biological birth mother.

The subsequent investigation revealed the biological parents who did not have custodial rights to the juvenile, contacted the juvenile and lured him away from the school. A large-scale search operation and investigation was initiated simultaneously which ultimately led investigators to the city of Hemet where the missing juvenile and both biological parents were located. The biological parents / suspects were arrested without incident and later booked into jail for conspiracy and child stealing. The juvenile was later safely returned to foster care unharmed.

Suspects arrested:

Jerry Frazier, 42 of Hemet
182PC Conspiracy, 278PC Child Stealing
Chasity Chaianti Phillips, 42 of Hemet
182PC Conspiracy, 278PC Child Stealing
