In case any of you were interested in the reason why that house was raided a couple of weeks ago, it was because the occupant was stealing U Haul trucks, then using the trucks to steal ATM machines and cracking them open at the house.  I recall seeing U Haul trucks there backed up to the garage pretty frequently.

This was simply about one suspect that was captured after eluding law enforcement in the residence. No other parties involved. 1 flash bang and multiple tear gas rounds were utilized with a dog.

There was a time, not that long ago, that  in the Lake Mathews, Gavilan Springs/Hills area that we had regular patrol by the Sheriff's department. We experienced few incidents like mentioned in the previous posts.

I haven't seen a Sheriff patrol car in over a month, maybe more. It's like they don't exist in our area anymore. This type of violent activity is now becoming normal. It's like we live in Central Riverside with all the thugs.

Five or six years ago the Sheriff Department worked with our community closely and addressed our neighborhood problems promptly. You would see patrol cars on a regular basis cruising the area. There was a feeling of safety. Unfortunately those days have gone.

.Not yet, I had to go to work.  A neighbor told me he heard what he thought was a flash bang grenade.  My wife heard shots and yelling.  It must have been serious.  The officers, and there were dozens of them, were from many different local agencies.

So, I woke up this morning to fire, paramedics, and about 40 unmarked police vehicles, including a SWAT van staging on my street.  They were about to raid a house around the corner.  I live by the equestrian center.  Anyone know anything about it?
