Several days later, on June 26, 2016, detectives responded to an ad selling some of the same cameras. The unsuspecting seller met with the detective during which time four of the cameras were identified and recovered. Police obtained a search warrant of the home and six more cameras were located. The subject told officers that the cameras came from a former employee of the warehouse, 24-year-old Moreno Valley resident, Anthony Zent.
Police learned that Zent ended his employment at the warehouse during the same time period when the theft was discovered. Zent was contacted outside of his home on the 22000 block of Adrienne Avenue on Thursday afternoon. During a search of his home, detectives located $18,000, which was made from the sale of the stolen cameras. Zent was arrested and is being held on over $1 million bail.
Most of the cameras remain missing and Riverside police are asking for the public’s help in locating them. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is still urged to contact Detective Brett Stennett at (951) 826-5388 or Detective Joe Miera at (951) 353-7241
