Armed Transient Arrested Across the Street From Grand Terrace High School

GRAND TERRACE – A Grand Terrace transient was arrested after deputies from the Central station found him trespassing in a building at Cage Park. At around 10:40 a.m. on Wednesday, the deputy responded to the area of Main and Taylor streets to conduct an investigation regarding the report of transients trespassing in an abandoned steel building.

Three subjects were contacted at the park, who were staying inside the building. The deputy asked them to come outside. Riche Santiago, 28,  one of the transients inside, came outside but ran westbound through the park. The deputy followed and was able to take him into custody shortly after. He was found to have a no-bail warrant for his arrest for the possession of stolen property. The building was searched for Santiago’s property and the deputy located a  sawed-off shotgun, shotgun shells and over a pound of marijuana.

The park is across the street from the high school causing Santiago to be arrested for possession of a gun in a school zone as well as for his warrant. Santiago was booked into the Central Detention Center.
