HESPERIA – A man who was on post-release community supervision (PRCS) was arrested after attempting to gain entry into a Hesperia home last week.
At around 7:45 p.m. on Friday, March 9, 2018, Saul Mejia, 37, attempted to gain entry to a home in the 18000 block of Sequoia Street. The children who lived in the home were inside and called 911 for deputy assistance. When deputies arrived the children ran out the door.
