Narcotics Suspect Caught Sleeping Off a Bender in School Playground


Rosa Parks Elementary playground

A suspect was arrested by the Eastvale Police Department for possession of narcotics, possession of narcotic paraphernalia, child endangerment, burglary and for an outstanding felony warrant.

On Thursday, October 22 at 8:19 AM, children at Rosa Parks Elementary School noticed a man sleeping on the playground. The children notified school authorities, who contacted the Eastvale Police Department.

The suspect, realizing he had been discovered, fled the school before deputies arrived. However, the man left narcotics and narcotic paraphernalia behind on the school grounds. Residents reported seeing the man running in the neighborhood east of the school.

As a precaution, the school was locked down and authorities did a thorough search of the grounds.  At 11:00 AM, deputies spotted the suspect walking on Sumner Avenue and Pheasant Knoll, but again, the suspect fled from deputies running into the neighborhood.

Authorities then established a perimeter and began searching house to house. Residents reported seeing the suspect entering a garage in the 13000 block of Pheasant Knoll. Deputies discovered the man hiding in the garage and took him into custody without further incident. According to a press release from the Riverside Sheriff’s Department, the homeowner did not know suspect, and was unaware that the man had entered her residence and garage.

The suspect, identified as Timothy Joseph Crevier, a 21-year-old male resident of Bakersfield, was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center.

Available records show that Crevier had been arrested just two weeks prior in Lake Isabella, in Kern County, on drug charges. He had also been charged with burglary, vandalism, and resisting arrest in September. In January, while living in Riverside, he was arrested for domestic violence – inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or co-habitant, along with drug and paraphernalia charges. He has been arrested on various related charges, also including petty theft, possession of stolen property, and resisting arrest, at least twelve times in the past two years, while living in either Riverside, Lake Isabella, or Mountain Mesa, a town also near Isabella Lake in Kern County.
