The Department’s Anti-Crime Unit has identified several suspects involved in ongoing thefts and burglaries throughout our community.
One of the suspects, identified as 36-year-old Raul Ruiz, was located in possession of a confirmed stolen Pelican Cooler last night during a traffic stop. Additional coolers were also located and seized. Ruiz was charged with Theft of Property <$2,500—Enhanced/Previous Convictions. The Pelican Cooler was returned to the owner. The Department’s Gang Unit assisted with the stop and investigation.
The Anti-Crime Unit also conducted an investigatory detention of Ruiz on April 30, 2020, where they recovered several recently reported stolen power tools valued at $2,300.00. The tools were returned to the owner and charges are pending the outcome of that ongoing investigation.
