On April 29, 2020, at the direction of Sheriff Chad Bianco, deputies served a search warrant in the 41000 block of Hatton Garden Court.

The electrical system within the residence had been illegally altered causing a severe fire hazard. Lake Elsinore Code Enforcement / Building and Safety deemed the house uninhabitable.
