Looking down the 3000 block of Stansell Drive
LOMA LINDA – Investigators, tipped to reports of mail theft, tracked down three suspects in neighboring Riverside County last week which resulted in felony charges against two men and a woman.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies Alfredo Lopez and Patrick Leon, who tracked down all three to a Riverside residence, had to stop Julie Hernandez, 40, while trying to flee.
Jeffrey John Carrillo, 37, of Riverside, tried to hide from the deputies inside the residence on the 3000 block of Stansell Dr.
Keith Tyrone Porter, 55, of Riverside, had confronted the deputies while Carrillo and Hernandez were attempting to evade arrest.
All three were charged with theft of mail, identity theft and felony conspiracy.
Deputies had originally responded to the 25000 block of Chula Vista Street in Loma Linda on May 5. Theft of mail had been reported by a witness that alerted law enforcement.
Lopez said the witness provided information, which included a description of the suspects and their car, a 2005 silver BMW sedan. Lopez said they were able to positively identify Carrillo and Hernandez as suspects.
One day later, the deputies, along with detectives from the Central Station, went to the Stansell Drive residence.
When the investigation continued, Porter was found not to have been involved in the Loma Linda crimes, but had several outstanding warrants for his arrest in both San Bernardino and Riverside counties, including failure to appear on vehicle code violations.
He was booked at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
Neither Carrillo nor Hernandez have court dates set, though both have been released on bail. Hernandez’s case has been forwarded to the San Bernardino District Attorney for additional review.
