On June 7, 2023, at 9:23 PM, Lake Mathews Station deputies were dispatched to an armed robbery in the 3800 block of McKinley Street, Home Gardens. A Hispanic male, wearing a hooded sweatshirt and blue face mask, entered the business armed with a handgun and demanded money from the register. The suspect fled the store and was seen entering a waiting black SUV. With the assistance of Riverside Police Department’s Air Unit (Air-1) the suspect vehicle was located in the area of Cajalco Expressway and Brown Steet in Mead Valley. Deputies assigned to the Perris Station conducted a vehicle stop and detained two juveniles, one armed with a handgun.
