On Thursday, November 22, 2018, an armed robbery occurred in a shopping center located in the 1800 block of North Perris Boulevard, Perris. The victims agreed to meet the suspect to sell him an 8-week old English bulldog puppy. When the victims arrived, two suspects emerged from a black SUV. One of the suspects brandished a firearm at the victims and stole their four puppies. Both suspects fled the scene in the SUV. On Friday, November 23, 2018, officers from the Perris Station Burglary Suppression Team (BST) assumed the investigation and identified one of the suspects as 22-year-old Alexxys Octavio Jimenez, of Moreno Valley. Perris Station BST and Officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department contacted Jimenez at his Moreno Valley residence. Jimenez was arrested without incident and all four English bulldog puppies were recovered. Jimenez was later booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center for armed robbery.
