RANCHO CUCAMONGA – A Fontana man was arrested after an unrelated investigation led to the discovery that he was connected with six area burglaries. On Monday morning, at around 7:45 a.m. deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga Station responded to the report of a fight in the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court parking lot. When he arrived he detained the four involved who were later identified as, Demetrio Herrera, David Herrera, Denisha Owens, and Michael Gonzales as they sat in two vehicles parked in the south court parking lot.
One of the deputies noticed that Owens was wearing a baseball hat and distinctive pair of sandals that were reported stolen from a Fontana Little League Park. After further communication with the foursome, deputies noticed that Demetrio was wearing shoes that matched photographed footprints taken from the scene of a burglary at Red Hill Park on August 8, 2017. Deputies searched both vehicles and located additional property from five burglaries and the theft of a Rancho Cucamonga park generator in Demetrio’s vehicle.
Additional stolen property was located in two other Fontana locations.
