Temecula Man Fleeced After Meeting New Friends At Bar

A Lake Elsinore woman is behind bars for allegedly being in possession of property pilfered from a Temecula man’s home.

A Temecula resident who met new friends at a bar got ripped off in the process, police are reporting.

An investigation into the case began May 3, when deputies from the Temecula Police Department investigated a grand theft case in the 28500 Block of Elinda Road in Temecula.

According to Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. K. McDonald, a man went out to a local bar with some friends and subsequently invited several people he just met at the watering hole to come to his Elinda Road home for more socializing.

The fun ended, however, when the man discovered the next morning that items had been taken from his residence.

Through investigation, deputies from the Temecula Police Department identified a suspect in the case: 21-year-old Desiree Colbert of Lake Elsinore.

The deputies obtained a search warrant for Colbert’s residence on Avocado Way and served it Monday around 2 p.m.

According to McDonald, property from the Temecula theft was recovered during the search and Colbert was arrested for possession of stolen property.

“Additional charges are anticipated,” McDonald said.

no violent crimes in CA normally don't get jail time unless she has a rap sheet....especially, with the budget cuts.
That Temecula Guy September 12, 2012 at 02:22 PM
I'd let her fleece me. She's hot!

Stop taking the Viagra dude. Looks are not the "Real" beauty of a woman.
John Doe September 12, 2012 at 02:53 PM
No Thanks

That's just what ugly people say to make themselves and ugly women feel better.

True JJ. She wont spend a day in jail and for a premeditated crime. We surely cant have criminals sleeping on the floor in the jail house with blankets and pillows, god forbid. But we can have homeless in our City sleeping outside in far worse conditions and I bet not one has a pillow. :/
Brenda September 12, 2012 at 08:19 PM
Eeeee Temecula Guy, a criminal? You will wake up and find everything gone.
bikebrainiac September 12, 2012 at 09:11 PM
don't forget your asbestos condom, she looks skanky
That Temecula Guy September 12, 2012 at 09:58 PM
No no no, not at my house. See, if you find yourself with such a lady, you don't bring her home. You just need one of the fine, high class room-by-the-night establishments in Old Town Temecula. Got to plan ahead!

Nice...there are two idiots here. The guy for allowing this floozy to come to his house, there are motels for "more socializing". This chick for her sticky fingers and thinking she could just take the stuff home and set it up in her house. Did she paint a yellow line (for the police) on the street going to her house with a red "bulls eye" on the painted on the door or maybe she had a neon sign = "stolen goods here"! LOL...
That Temecula Guy September 12, 2012 at 10:47 PM
Just a hint to any fellows looking for trouble: Don't drink while looking for good-looking trouble. It will save you a lot of grief. Buy drinks for others. Get club soda for yourself. End of lesson.

not only is the girl an alleged criminal, she's a dumb one as well! 4 months of keeping the stolen property in her home....
Brenda September 13, 2012 at 12:34 AM
Lord, I need a giggle today and you guys delivered and I got a good laugh, several actually. TemeGuy and In2golf, dang you are thinking, and the hotel would have been a much better idea, but heck maybe he didnt have any money left from filling her with booze, and doesnt it say he took several home? "Invited several home". So she had a herd of friends with her. This guy must have been in heaven and we need to MEET HIM, take him out to dinner!! I seriously love this man and he needs to be famous in our town :) No other reason guys! Come on I am a 52 yr old Granny. I just think he deserves some positive attention after this! Temecula Stallion Now I wonder if they got enough out to make it a felony on all counts and to prove it was premeditated, like Viagra in his booze, or a sleeping pill? Also wonder out how they eventually caught her after all this time, and, she kept the stuff for herself, what a ditz, but they did get the "goods" on her that way, literally. Now our young man can laugh and hopefully laugh at himself for learning this lesson and how BAD women can actually be, especially ones that look so tough and rough. Rofl love the yellow line and red bulls eye. Hysterical. Golfdude In all seriousness however, I am sorry to her family who look rather nice and normal and realize they probably have had a lifetime of issues with this girl, and hopefully they can get it all turned around and she is able to turn her life around for the good.

Hey there TG Piggy.

This guy must have been coming off of a rather lengthy dry spell.
Teller of Truth September 13, 2012 at 04:46 PM
It's all just a big mis understanding. He asked her if she wanted a 'Rob Roy' . She just took it wrong............
realtalk September 14, 2012 at 01:26 AM
U all need a life haha do u even know this girl? U guys are probably all overweight and have nothing better to do with your miserable lives except make miserable comments about someone else. So stop sticking your long ass noses in other peoples business and deal with your own life and problems. No one is perfect and bad decisions dont make someone a bad person. No one even knows the story past this article. Judging without knowing is a sin its self. So go on and live your pathetic lonely lives and keep the depressing comments up. Their more interesting than the story its self. Good day
Constant Comment September 14, 2012 at 04:47 AM
Ok...Now all this thief is going to get in jail are a Rusty Nail, a few Screwed Drivers and a lot of Wallbangers! Ha! }~)
Constant Comment September 14, 2012 at 04:49 AM
I often wondered what ever happened to that girl off of 'Beverly Hills 90210" TV Show. Shannon Dougherty? (Come on...ya know you were thinkin that too!) }~)
Brenda September 14, 2012 at 06:57 AM
LOL CC. Realtalk you are obviously a friend of this girl. This thread is cute and funny, and I am sure we all thank you. LOL, its a cute story for the victim, the suspect has been caught, and it all ends well. Oh, and you are a smart cookie, I am overweight, I do have alot of better things to do, and my life isnt miserable yet, and my nose is fat, not long, and I am discussing the issue, and I do deal with my life, no one is perfect, people do make bad decisions, and yes you are right they don't make someone a bad person, a person makes themselves a bad person. We will eventually hear the extended story past this article, and we know she is innocent until proven guilty, and I am not pathetic, lonely, and the only person who will think all of this is depressing is "Ms. Thing" who hopefully has not been bailed out yet. You are right, everyones great personalities have come out in this article and its all funny, light hearted and fun. I still think we should make this man, the victim an Honorary Something or other :) I think he deserves it. There ya go Realtalk! Have a good one. Constant Comment, I am guessing Wallbangers and not just one, apparently a few were there. Hahahahaha
Brenda September 14, 2012 at 06:59 AM
You are right Constant she does have that snearing lip thing and glaring eye thing going on like she is the meanest thing around. And why is that? Being arrested and giving a look like that for her picture? Heck I would be crying my eyes out if I was just in the get away car or something. :
That Temecula Guy September 15, 2012 at 01:14 AM
You made me smile, realtalk.Sticking our noses in her business? She made it our business when she broke the law which then required taxpayer funded public resources to handle. I wonder if you're her goofy looking bf in her FB pics. She could do so much better. If you're just one of her friends, I KNOW she could do better lol.
Temecula man September 20, 2012 at 11:26 PM

Brenda September 20, 2012 at 11:50 PM

Temecula man September 25, 2012 at 01:33 AM
We actually found out who she was because she took pictures on my computer... not the brightest girl in the world!
in2golf.37 September 25, 2012 at 12:53 PM
Sure...come on over to my house. On your way, stop by the local bar and bring some friends.
Tony October 29, 2012 at 10:33 PM
So Temecula man... What did she actually steal from you? and did you really hit that shit? Even while she had a "boyfriend"?
Brenda October 29, 2012 at 11:53 PM
