On December 3, 2022, at 12:00 PM, deputies assigned to the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station began a burglary investigation at a business in the 6300 block of Archibald Avenue in Eastvale. Deputies learned the victim suffered a house flood and stored their entire life valuables at this business. Property valued at over $100,000 dollars had been stolen.
Deputies assigned to the Eastvale Special Enforcement Team (SET) assumed the investigation and through various investigative means, identified two suspects responsible for burglary. The investigation led SET deputies to another business in the city of Buena Park. A search warrant was served at the business and several thousand dollars worth of various stolen property was recovered and returned to the victim.
On December 8, 2022, while continuing to investigate the burglary, SET deputies and Riverside County Sheriff investigators served a search warrant at a home in the city of Lakewood.
