INCIDENT:  PC496 Receiving Stolen Property
LOCATION: Harvard Rd. x Hacienda Rd. in Newberry Springs
SUSPECTS: 1. White male juvenile, 16 years old and a resident of Victorville, CA
2. Black male juvenile, 17 years old and a resident of Adelanto, CA
VICTIM: David Green, a resident of Victorville, CA
On September 20, 2016, Deputy Mamon of the Barstow Sheriff's Station
conducted a suspicious vehicle check in the Newberry Springs area of Harvard Road.
While examining the vehicle, Mamon saw two males a short distance away. He made
eye contact with the males who both fled over a fence. Mamon provided dispatch
with basic information then gave chase. Deputy Rodriguez heard the radio traffic
and immediately went to assist.
Once on scene, Rodriguez and Mamon worked as a team to coordinate a perimeter,
evacuated residents of two properties and conduct an initial search for the two males.
The vehicle identification number (VIN) was queried through dispatch. Deputies learned
the two males were wanted for carjacking, vehicle theft, burglary and possibly had a stolen
handgun. A perimeter was set and maintained; one suspect was taken into custody after
he was found hiding in a tree. That suspect was not in possession of the firearm.
San Bernardino County Sheriff's, Specialized Enforcement Division (SED) was called
to assist with the search for the second suspect who was believed to be armed and hiding
within the fenced property, which contained numerous structures such as an old school bus,
motorhomes, campers, sheds, buildings and two homes. Once SED arrived and donned
equipment, the second suspect surrendered. The firearm was found in a refrigerator
on the property.
The investigation revealed the two males were juveniles wanted in Riverside
for carjacking with no bail warrants for their arrest. Additionally, they were also
wanted in connection to a residential burglary where a gun and vehicle were stolen two days
earlier in Victorville. To avoid detection, the suspects placed stolen plates on the
stolen vehicle. The suspicious vehicle, which started Mamon's investigation, was the
reported stolen car and the recovered gun was the reported stolen gun out of Victorville.
The two juveniles were arrested and booked at High Desert Juvenile Detention
and Assessment Center for felony receiving stolen property. No bail was set due to
the no-bail arrest warrants.
Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is urged
to contact Detective Stokes or Deputy Ramos of the Barstow Sheriff's Station.
