On Saturday, April 24, 2021, about 11:30 AM, members of the Jurupa Valley Special Enforcement Team were following up with complaints of illegal off-road vehicles and large gatherings in the hills, in the unincorporated area of Lake Hills. While driving the hills looking for off-road violators, deputies contacted 32-year-old Kevin Stevenson, a resident of Lake Elsinore. Stevenson was found to be in possession of a California non-compliant rifle (ghost gun) and a high capacity magazine. Stevenson was taken into custody and booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center.
