Suspected wire theft leads to arrest of two in Riverside mobile home park on drug charges

News headline from the Riverside Police Department:

On April 24th, North Neighborhood Policing Center Officers went to a mobile home park located in the 900 block of West La Cadena Drive in Riverside in response to a request for assistance in the ongoing efforts to combat various criminal activities within the park.

While in the park, the Officers observed several lengths of copper wire outside of one of the mobile homes.  While moving towards the mobile home, they observed a male subject stripping a section of wire.  Based on the high volume of wire thefts occurring in our city, this subject was detained.

During the course of this contact, the officers obtained a consent search of the mobile home.

The search resulted in the location of thirty-eight (38) pounds of loose marijuana in two large trash bags.  A small amount of suspected methamphetamine was also located.

The copper wire could not be positively identified as stolen property.

The two suspects, identified as Bernardo Salmeron, 48, and Susan Hoover, 53, residents of Riverside, were arrested and booked for possession of marijuana for sale.  Salmeron was booked for an additional charge of possession of methamphetamine.

Chris Manning, North Area Commander, commented that “This is an excellent example of a cooperative approach to addressing quality of life issues in our city.  These initial efforts will result in the park being welcomed into the Crime Free Multi-Housing program in the near future.”
