On Monday, March 23, 2020, at approximately 7:37 a.m., deputies assigned to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department responded to a business located in the 3700 block of Milliken Avenue, Eastvale, regarding a commercial burglary. Their investigation revealed approximately $15,000.00 worth of DeWalt power tools were stolen from the location. The Jurupa Valley Station’s Burglary Suppression Team was notified and assumed the investigation. Surveillance video was obtained in the area of the burglary and a 2002 Blue Chevrolet Suburban was identified as the suspect vehicle used during the commission of this crime.
On Thursday, March 26, 2020, members from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Gang Task Force (Region 7) conducted a probation compliance search at a motel in the city of Jurupa Valley. During the search, Vincent Poncinie, a 32-year-old resident of Jurupa Valley, was found in possession of a homemade handgun, also known as a “ghost gun”, along with numerous stolen DeWalt power tools taken during the burglary. He was arrested for possessing the illegal firearm and booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center.
Further investigation revealed Poncinie and a second suspect, Rolando Gutierres, a 38-year-old resident of Fontana, were responsible for burglarizing the business in Eastvale. On Tuesday, March 31, 2020, a deputy assigned to the Burglary Suppression Team located Gutierres driving the blue Chevrolet Suburban in the area of California State Route 60 and Pedley Road, Jurupa Valley. Deputies attempted to conduct a traffic enforcement stop, but Gutierres fled the area at a high rate of speed endangering the safety of the public.
On Wednesday, April 8, 2020, members from the Jurupa Valley Station’s Special Enforcement Team located Gutierres in the 9800 block of Sierra Avenue, Fontana. Gutierres fled from the location on foot and was arrested after a short foot chase. Gutierres was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center for commercial burglary, possession of stolen property, conspiracy to commit a crime, resisting arrest and violation of probation. Charges will be filed on Poncinie out of custody for his involvement during the commercial burglary.
