Three Arrested for the Attempted Theft at a Fire Evacuee’s Home

SAN BERNARDINO – Three suspects were arrested on Thursday after attempting to steal from a residence in an evacuated area, officials said. At around 7:00 a.m. deputies responded to the report of suspicious activity at a home on the 8600 block of Swarthout Canyon in an unincorporated San Bernardino area.

When deputies arrived he located 27-year-old Jurupa resident, Daniel Mervine, 27-year-old Diamond Bar resident, Natasha Rovinsky and 29-year-old Riverside resident, Trevor Sanchez attempting to leave the home with a flatbed truck.

When deputies approached the suspects they told deputies that they were picking up things for the resident of the home. Deputies called the property owner to verify the information provided by the suspects but the owner told deputies that he gave no one permission to take his property.

Mervine, Rovinsky, and Sanchez were arrested for grand theft during a state emergency and grand theft auto. The three are being held in lieu of $50,000 bail and are due to appear at the San Bernardino Superior Court on Monday afternoon.
