Three Arrested While in the Blue Cut Fire Evacuation Areas

Family Assistance Program

Disasters bring out both the best and the worst in people, some reach out with support while others seek opportunity to take advantage of an already bad situation. During the evacuation of approximately 35,000 homes, the 70 San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies  assigned to patrol these areas saw both sides of this. Three recent arrests were made in the Swarthout Canyon, Oak Hills, and Phelan during this period.

“Our focus is the safety of our citizens and protection of their property. We will fully investigate, pursue and arrest anyone involved in criminal activity and re-victimizing the evacuated residents”, stated Sheriff John McMahon, in a release.

Deputies responded at around 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday night to a call of ATV’s in the area near Baldy Mesa and Phelan Roads. The male subject on the ATV was identified as a convicted felon. In his possession deputies located a handgun and ammunition. He was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm, officials said.

The following day, late Thursday morning deputies stopped a truck in the evacuated area of Phelan. They made contact with the two male subjects inside the truck, who did not live in the area. In the possession of the two were tools identified as those commonly used during burglaries. The two were arrested for the possession of the burglary tools.
