HOME GARDENS – When a routine probation check conducted by members of the Corona/Jurupa Valley Regional Gang Task Force on June 17th revealed that Jesse Felix, a convicted felon, had a loaded 9 mm semi-automatic firearm (Ghost gun) nestled in his belongings, the search began. While the Task Force was on the 3700 block of Byron Street, Home Gardens, Felix’s whereabouts were rendered unknown at that time.
Nearly three weeks later, Task Force Members, now displaying an arrest warrant, located Felix on July 9th in the 13400 block of Estelle Street. While Felix was cuffed for the arrest warrant, another search produced additional evidence against the felon.
“A loaded firearm was found that had been reported stolen to the Corona Police Department,” said Corporal Ramirez – Corona/Jurupa Valley Regional Gang Task Force. “Additionally, several loaded firearm magazines were found along with 1.9 grams of methamphetamine.”
Felix was put under Firearm Narcotics Arrest, for gun- and drug-related charges, as well as a probation violation. “The Riverside County Gang Task Force is a collaborative effort of several law enforcement agencies with the goal of combating criminal street gangs,” said Sheriff Chad Bianco. “The Corona/Jurupa Valley Regional Gang Task Force is one of 6 teams which compose the Riverside County Regional Gang Task Force.”
