SUV Stolen in Temecula Found in Winchester; Suspect Arrested

Neighborhood residents report a suspicious man asleep or passed out in a Ford Expedition Sunday morning.

An SUV reported stolen in Temecula was recovered Sunday by deputies responding to reports of a man possibly passed out in a vehicle in Winchester, according to the Sheriff’s Department. 

Trevor While, 28, was in the driver’s seat when deputies pulled up to the black Ford Expedition parked in the 35000 block of Van Goyen Lane around 8:35 a.m. White provided deputies with a false name and birth date, according to Sgt. Jon Wade.

A records check indicated the SUV was stolen in Temecula on Dec. 19 and the license plates were stolen in Menifee, according to Wade. The front plate was reported stolen on Dec. 19 and the rear plate on Dec. 22.

White, of Canyon Lake, was on active county probation for theft and narcotics violations, according to police, and was suspected of being under the influence of methamphetamine. He was arrested without incident and booked into the Southwest Detention Center on $25,000 bail.

White faces charges of taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent, receiving known stolen property and violating probation, all felonies, as well as being under the influence of a controlled substance and providing false ID to an officer, both misdemeanors.

Thank you Andy. I am about serve time for the crime, but also like to see people get drug/alcohol help if its an underlying reason they got in trouble. Drugs are vicious and we just do not have any facilities to help these men and women and KIDS for heavens sake. In this wreck of a USA we live in now there are uptenth reasons why people get addicted to all of the above and can be a mother, father, son, daughter, someone loves them. Thats all hun, and I am old enough that when I was younger we had those type of places, alot of them. So its sad to see an otherwise nice person who stepped right into this drug mess after loosing a job, a wife, who knows what he has been through just get tossed in jail or just let back out to do it again. Course if he is a career criminal, and he has been given help, then I guess his dime is up :/

It was different back then Faunt. Hell I am 53, at 28, was single mom of one, worked way too many hours, had bought my house. Today we do not know this guys story if there is one that kinda makes us go "hmmm he has had a tough time, for whatever reasons, and maybe he needs a bit of help with direction. Drug rehab we dont have anymore unless you get dang lucky to make it until there is an opening at Salvation Army or a smaller church type place that does the same when they get out of jail. Just with addictions like he so obviously has, he might be one heck of a nice person under the guise of all the drugs. I just feel repeatedly going to jail(which you still have to do the time) and then just letting them back out with no real rehab to go is repeating the cycle. I know, I am a ole muschy.

Thank you Fallen, and I hope some day our country goes back to taking care of our own. Whether its our hungry, homeless, alcoholics, drug addicts its way past time for the USA people to say no more money to other countries until we have what our people need! God Bless and Happy New Year to you too.
