Temecula Burglaries Lead to Arrests in Menifee

Information received by the authorities in regards to residential burglaries led to the arrest of four Riverside County residents in Menifee.

While investigating several residential burglaries in the city, the Temecula Police Department received information that led them to arrest a Menifee man who is believed to have received stolen property, as well as three other Riverside County residents.

Deven Bernal, 29, was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property, possession of methamphetamine, possession of ammunition, child endangerment and for being under the influence of a controlled substance, authorities said.

According to Temecula Police, at 3:45 a.m. Wednesday the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Special Enforcement Bureau executed a search warrant in the 27800 block of Overland Way in Menifee. At the residence, the Temecula Police Department's Special Enforcement Team located a large flat screen TV, a laptop, and a digital camera, which had all been stolen in Temecula burglaries within the past several days. Additionally, officers found methamphetamine and materials used to package methamphetamine for sale.

Also arrested and charged at the home were Michelle Stewart, 30, of Menifee, for receiving stolen property, possession of methamphetamine, possession of ammunition and child endangerment; and Erica Spigell, 28, of Riverside, and Aldrich Rico, 32, of Moreno Valley, both for being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the Temecula Police Department's Special Enforcement Team at 951-696-3000.

you know JJ Mclure, as a conservative Patriot I have been watching the crime scene and unfortunately there are alot of young white criminals out there, which disheartens me. I see it as a state of things to come - too many young whites taking drugs (as it appears those that end up arrested charges seem to include intoxication of substances like meth) lack of a desire to educate themselves and a poor economy. So your statement, 'more beaners causing trouble' is really out of line. Besides, fighting a good fight should always include using terminology that cannot be construed as racist. Its too easy for everyone to focus on your racist comment than it is to actually 'get' what you are saying.
