News headline from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department:
Shortly before 4:00 p.m. on June 7th, deputies in Hesperia arrested Jaime Javier Cardenas on a probation violation and burglary in connection with stolen lottery tickets.
Hesperia Detectives believe Cardenas is responsible for over 20 recent commercial burglaries in Hesperia and possibly 20 others throughout the Victor Valley.

Jaime Cardenas was arrested and booked at the Victor Valley Jail and State Parole has issued a no-bail hold.
