On May 29, 2020 deputies assigned to the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station County Problem Oriented Policing Team responded to multiple areas in Lakeland Village in response to having received complaints from the community. The complaints ranged from a rise in numerous quality of life issues regarding the homeless, along with an uptick in property crimes. The County Problem Oriented Policing Team responded with the assistance of Social Workers Action Group (SWAG), a non-profit organization.
Five subjects were located in the area and identified as homeless. Four were arrested for various offenses ranging from transportation/sales of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, violation of post community supervision, and possession of a controlled substance. All subjects spoke with SWAG in an attempt to end the cycle of homelessness. Two subjects accepted services from SWAG.
Clayton Jones (37 years old) resident of Lake Elsinore, Jesse McKinney (32 years old) resident of Lake Elsinore, Luke Johnson (26 years old) resident of Lake Elsinore, were located, arrested and booked into the Robert Prestley Detention Center for transportation/sales of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, violation of post community supervision, and possession of a controlled substance.
The Lake Elsinore Station’s County Problem Oriented Policing Team will continue to respond to the communities requests for services and will also continue to try to end the cycle of homelessness in assigned areas.
As a reminder, "Community Policing" involves partnerships between law enforcement and community members. Business owners and residents are encouraged to report criminal activity directly to law enforcement by calling Sheriff’s Dispatch at (951) 776-1099, or by calling 911 if the matter is an emergency.
