On Monday, January 6, 2020, at approximately 3:51 P.M., deputies from the Perris Station received a report of a suspicious circumstance call in the 4300 Block of Candelaria Way, in the city of Perris. The reporting party stated they have not seen their neighbor for several days and a steady flow of water coming out of the residence, flooding the neighboring yards.
