UPLAND, Calif. – Officers from the Upland Police Department witnessed a vehicle that was believed to be involved in a Lakewood carjacking and kidnapping.
The incident began at around 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, near 19th Street and Campus Avenue, when the officers attempted to stop the black Kia Forte. The driver of the vehicle failed to yield leading to a pursuit. When the vehicle got to the area of Carnelian and Baseline in the City of Rancho Cucamonga, the driver lost control crashing into a cul-de-sac. The driver, later identified as 44-year-old Adalberto Gonzalez, fled from the vehicle, while two female accomplices were detained at the scene. Officers took a loaded firearm and methamphetamine into evidence, but Gonzalez was not located.
On Thursday, February 14, 2019, investigations led to an Ontario home. The SIU team surveilled the home and eventually saw Gonzalez enter the ome. With the assistance of the Rancho Cucamonga, the Ontario Police, and the Upland Police, the SIU team surrounded the home and instructed the occupants to come out. The occupants complied and Gonzalez was detained. Marc Farnsworth, who was also at the location was also detained.
Gonzalez and Farnsworth were both learned to be documented Hawaiian Gardens gang members and they were booked into jail for multiple felonies.
