Riverside Brothers Arrested for Vehicle and Firearm Theft

RIVERSIDE – Two Riverside brothers were arrested for vehicle thefts on Thursday morning following a suspicious traffic stop. A Riverside police officer stopped a vehicle that was occupied by Alfredo Sanchez, 20, but at the time was unable to confirm if the vehicle was stolen since the owner was on vacation. Later a detective was able to reach the owner of the vehicle who confirmed the vehicle was stolen.

At around 9:00 a.m. on Thursday Detectives and P.O.P.  (Problem Oriented Policing) officers went to the 5400 block of Jones Avenue in the City of Riverside. While there they attempted to make contact with Alfredo Sanchez, who has 2 prior convictions for stolen vehicles and a conviction for the possession of a stolen miniature horse. Alfredo Sanchez fled on foot but was arrested a short time later.

While at the residence officers also made contact with his 24-year-old brother, Hugo Sanchez, who was hiding in the home. Hugo Sanchez was arrested for warrants including two for stolen vehicles. Hugo Sanchez has several prior drug convictions as well as a stolen vehicle conviction.

Officers searched the home and located a 9mm Glock handgun, which was found to be stolen out of a parked vehicle on August 24, 2016, in the 11200 block of Westfall Lane in the City of Riverside. Both suspects were booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center.

Alfredo Sanchez was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of stolen property (firearm), convicted felon in possession of a firearm, convicted felon in possession of ammunition, child endangerment (leaving the firearm accessible to children in the home), and probation violations
