Sheriff’s officials said that Mark Carter was the wanted suspect in a robbery and domestic battery incident which occurred on November 16th at the apartments located at 18125 Bellflower Street in the City of Adelanto.

In addition to being on PRCS, Carter also was monitored using an electronic ankle monitor. The day after the robbery and domestic violence incident, County Probation was advised that Carter had cut off his ankle monitor .  Continued investigations led deputies to an apartment in the Raintree Garden Apartments, where Carter was located hiding in the apartment attic.
