Two Arrested in Riverside & San Diego County Trailer Thefts

Daniel Onstine and Boh Underwood

HEMET- Authorities identified arrested two men suspected as the culprits in a rash of thefts involving travel trailers in cargo trailers parked at storage facilities.

In an investigation that began several weeks ago, Riverside Auto-Theft Interdiction Detail (R.A.I.D.) assisted allied agencies in determining the suspects involved in the theft of travel trailers and cargo trailers throughout Riverside County.

According to the Riverside Sheriff’s Department, 2-3 male suspects driving a white mid-90’s Dodge Ram were responsible for the incidents. The suspects gained access to storage facilities, identified and then attached a trailer to the vehicle’s tow hitch, exiting the storage facility with the stolen property.  On several occasions, the suspects reportedly committed other acts of burglary before departing with the trailers.

Investigators were ultimately able to identify 46 year-old Daniel Onstine and 30 year-old Boh Underwood as two of the suspects committing these thefts.  On April 18, 2016, about 5:20 a.m., with the assistance of the Hemet Police Department, Onstine was stopped while driving his white Dodge Ram and towing a cargo trailer with two quads he and Boh Underwood had stolen from a storage facility in San Diego County.

Following Ontine’s arrest Searches the police searched residences in the 27000 block of Columbia Street and 600 block of Kellie Way, Hemet. Further investigation led the recovery of what police report is a large amount of stolen property including a stolen travel trailer, and a stolen cargo trailer.  Daniel Onstine and Boh Underwood were arrested and booked into jail on multiple counts of criminal charges involving vehicle theft, conspiracy, and possession of stolen property.

Authorties believe that Daniel Onstine, Boh Underwood and additional accomplices are responsible for committing over 20 vehicle and property thefts throughout Riverside and San Diego counties.

The Riverside Sheriff’s Department is encouraging the public to check on any stored trailers to ensure they were not a victim of these thefts and to secure their property against future theft. Anyone with information related to this investigation is encouraged to contact RAID Investigator Norbert Moll at (951) 955-2770.
