Isaac Sanchez

On June 20, 2019, at approximately 10:30 PM, the Riverside Sheriff’s Department S.T.R.E.E.T. Team and Menifee deputies stopped a vehicle on Bradley X Desert Hills, city of Menifee, for reckless driving actions. Upon contacting the driver obvious signs of suspected alcohol and drug impairment were observed, as was evidence of illegal drug evidence. During the ensuing investigation and field sobriety test, the driver was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. A substantial amount of illegal narcotics, along with additional items that were indicative of illegal narcotics sales were located as well.

The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Isaac Sanchez, 22, a resident of Menifee, was arrested and later booked at the Cois Byrd Detention Center on charges related to possession for sales of a controlled substance, transportation for sales of a controlled substance, and suspicion of driving under the influence.      

Illegal street racing, street takeovers, and sideshows are a dangerous, destructive, and far too often a deadly event in Riverside County. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs only increases the danger to the public. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, in partnership with local allied agencies, are taking a zero-tolerance approach to this illegal activity 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 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.
