Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Fitzgerald
File # MV230960243
On Thursday, April 6, 2023, deputies assigned to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office, Moreno Valley Station, Problem Oriented Policing (POP) team were working proactive patrol in the city. Deputies noticed a vehicle with equipment violations and made a moving violation, so they stopped the vehicle to enforce the violations.
When the deputies tried to stop the vehicle, the driver, Eduardo Loverabruno, a 34-year-old resident of Bakersfield, attempted to park his vehicle in a gas station parking lot and walk away from it. The deputies detained Loverabruno to investigate the violations and why he was trying to distance himself from the vehicle. During a legal search of Loverabruno’s vehicle, the deputies found their answer. Loverabruno was transporting approximately 1 kilogram of cocaine. Loverabruno was transported to the Robert Presley Detention Center for booking on charges of 11351 H&S (Possession of drugs with the intent to sell) and 11352 H&S (Transportation of drugs for sale).
Anyone with more information on this case is encouraged to call the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station at 951–486–6700 and ask for the POP team.
