MORENO VALLEY  – A 33-year-old San Bernardino man was arrested on Thursday afternoon for a series of robberies committed in Moreno Valley. These robberies include bank robberies which are similar to several in Riverside County as well as surrounding counties.

Jeffrey Tuli was linked to four recent Moreno Valley robberies including one on July 12th, one on July 14th, and to on July 20.

On July 12th just before 5:00 p.m. the suspect went into a bank located inside a business on 14000 block of Moreno Beach Drive. He gave the teller a note demanding money while threatening with a gun. The teller complied and the suspect fled the scene.

Only two days later, on July 14, 2016, at around 4:40 p.m. the suspect again entered a bank inside of a business, this time in the 25000 block of Iris Avenue. The suspect gave the teller a note demanding cash and threatening with a gun. The teller complied and the suspect fled the location with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The crime spree continued less than a week later in a parking lot in the 24000 block of Alessandro Boulevard. On July 20, 2016, at around 2:30 p.m.the suspect confronted two victims who were inside a vehicle. He threatened them with a gun demanding their property. The victims were able to leave unharmed and the suspect fled the location.

The same day, just 20 minutes later the persistent suspect went to a business on the 12000 block of Perris Boulevard. He threatened the employee with a gun demanding items from the business. The employee complied and the suspect fled with the items, officials said.

Through investigation, by the Moreno Police Department, investigators were quickly able to determine all four robberies were committed by the same suspect, Jeffrey Tuli. On the afternoon of July 21, 2016, police located Tuli in a parking lot in the 8900 block of Trautwein Road in the City of Riverside and in his possession were several items of evidence. He was arrested and booked into jail for the robberies.

 

The Moreno Valley Police Department in a collaborative effort to solve numerous crimes involving robberies have worked with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to link Tuli to other similar robberies in Riverside, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles Counties.
