Riverside County's 'Most Wanted Fugitives' List: Officials Still Need Public's Help

A recent case serves as a reminder that authorities are constantly seeking the public's help in finding the county's "Most Wanted Fugitives."

The list of Riverside County’s “Most Wanted Fugitives” has decreased by one when last week the district attorney’s office announced a suspect on the roll call was captured and arraigned on a charge of attempted murder.

San Jacinto resident Heriberto Anthony Levya Jr., 24, was picked up by authorities in Mexicali Sept. 4 in connection with the 2008 stabbing of a man at Soboba Casino.

Levya pleaded not guilty to the crime at Murrieta's Southwest Justice Center Sept. 14.

According to Riverside County District Attorney's Office spokesman John Hall, a witness to the crime told investigators Levya was angry with the victim, who allegedly was at the casino with the suspect's former girlfriend.

Hall said members of the Pacific Regional Fugitive Task Force developed information about Levya and provided details to authorities in Mexicali, who later made the arrest without incident.

The case serves as a reminder that authorities are constantly seeking the public's help in finding the county's "Most Wanted Fugitives."

Attached are posters of Riverside County’s current Most Wanted, including Levya.

To report information on any of the suspects, call (855) 212-2824 or (760) 341- 7867. Tips can be anonymous and eligible for a reward valued up to $1,000.

As I've said so many times on this site.... Riverside and San Berdo counties need a local TV station for local news and programming.... (jobs, jobs, jobs) This would also be extremely helpful to police and citizens in emergencies, fires, and criminal activity. For local businesses along with local community activities, it would be invaluable.

@Jerry, I agree 100%. I am tired of being on the fringes of the SD and LA markets. The Inland region has a culture and set of daily occurrences that is vastly removed from those of the larger markets. Patch is great when it comes to local coverage, but I would support any expansion of local news services.
