Alleged Squatters Arrested In Tuscany Hills

Daniel Service, 19, and Melissa Quinn, 22, both from Lake Elsinore, were arrested today for trespassing and drug possession.

Deputies from the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station arrested two suspected drug users who were allegedly squatting in the upscale neighborhood of Tuscany Hills.

Daniel Service, 19, and Melissa Quinn, 22, both from Lake Elsinore, were arrested today for trespassing. “Both suspects were also found to be in possession of suspected methamphetamine and heroin,” according to a report from Sgt. John Carlberg of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

The arrests come after police say they got tips from the public, the Tuscany Hills Homeowner's Association, and the Lake Elsinore Code Compliance Department.

“It was believed the residence was being used by squatters who were also engaged in illegal drug use,” the sergeant said in his report. “There has also been a marked increase in thefts and vehicle burglaries in this area.”

On Monday, Lake Elsinore sheriff’s deputies went to the residence at 10 Ponte Russo with Lake Elsinore Code Compliance officers, but no one was home, the sergeant reported.

During Monday’s visit, police “recovered evidence of illegal drug-related activity,” Sgt. Carlberg reported.

An Order to Vacate was issued and posted at the home, but at 6 a.m. today deputies found Service and Quinn at the house. Both were booked into the Southwest Detention Center.

Morton Washington, 56, lives next door and said he never noticed much activity at the home.

"They were neighbors, not squatters,” he said. “They respected me and respected them. I knew they where forced to vacate the premises. I looked out my window this morning and saw three squad cars over there." --Daniel Lane contributed to this report.

Roberto November 19, 2011 at 09:32 PM

Chalino Sanchez November 19, 2011 at 09:52 PM
Gosh the sexual tension between Roberto and A.G. is getting thick!
Anon November 19, 2011 at 09:53 PM
You got me! I am a dummy chaser!
Roberto November 19, 2011 at 10:07 PM
Chalino, Leave A.G. alone! She's all mine! You can have Diana once the sex operation is complete.
Anon November 19, 2011 at 10:08 PM

Who is Renee?
Roberto November 20, 2011 at 12:47 AM
Well A.G. Looks like Diana again S41T stirred and left you holding the bag this time. LOL!
Diana November 20, 2011 at 05:38 AM
Roberto/Buckley:No one left anyone holding the bag and if you recall that night at the local watering hole, I was the tall blond, jeans and boots, never a mini skirt. I led the dance floor in the electric slide and took over the dance floor with a swing dance with one of the best dancers in the place. But then again I'm sure you might not recall, you were pretty drunk.............and on this statement I am done talking to you.........you are an idiot and have nothing in life but to hide behind this silent screen and spit out hate and discontent and waste my time and others with your childish posts that say nothing.............mean nothing............and only your friend Tonto.........another empty shell to back your play.........you and your friend Tonto are exactly what is wrong with this town.........nothing to bring to the table that actually means anything but empty words and a waste of time..............
Tonto November 20, 2011 at 05:43 AM
I'll bet you didn't take care of your 6 o'clock shadow pal. Leave me out of your love hate relation with Buckberto :)
Roberto November 20, 2011 at 05:51 AM
Don, you are nothing but a sh%t stirrer. You are nothing but a regular at the Wreck. Thanks for "exposing me" now we will work on exposing you as you continue posting lies, sending people you don't know in the community a serial e-mails etc. etc. If you support Melessa Melendez, she had better step back and realize what she's associating with. Well anyways we will be seeing you at the Wreck and soon.
Roberto November 20, 2011 at 05:54 AM
Tonto, I don't know you....but leave A.G. alone...she's mine! No one wants Diane the man.
Diana November 20, 2011 at 05:59 AM
Blah. blah. blah.........you are pathetic and only you would know about the wreck...no one with any kind of class would step foot in that dive................go on Buckley show us your true side!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As if we care...............stirrer look in the mirror pal you are the one that is on this post 24-7.......really.........are you kidding me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Roberto November 20, 2011 at 06:03 AM
No I wouldn't kid with a turd. Hiding behind a womans name... now that takes class LOL!
Tonto November 20, 2011 at 06:12 AM
Probably a cross dresser :)
Roberto November 20, 2011 at 05:29 PM
Good morning Diane the man, Your electric slide at the Wreck was fabulous. Tonto, I like Buckberto. What really surprised me is those making fun of the car being torched. There are some sick puppies out here.
Roberto November 20, 2011 at 05:41 PM
Their modus operendi is predictible. How many cars have the corrupt opposition torched? Let tell you it's more than one along thousands of tax and developer dollars spent ruining people.
LAKE ELSINORE RESIDENT November 20, 2011 at 05:45 PM
We can only hope Buckley returns to local politics, like I said before he is HONEST and not beholdin.
Anon November 20, 2011 at 06:00 PM
Dont you have to be missing teeth to drink at THE WRECK?
Roberto November 20, 2011 at 06:00 PM
Remember the recall? Simply another developer scam and don't forget those criminally charged.
Anon November 20, 2011 at 06:09 PM
Who is Renee and Jackie? Explain, what am I missing here? The commission on what?
Mr. Lada November 20, 2011 at 06:55 PM
When either Chalindo Sanchez or Roberto gets backed into a corner, they 'both' resort to accusing the poster of being a man. Chalindo/Roberto is definitely scared of women.
Roberto November 20, 2011 at 07:12 PM
American Girl 10:00am on Sunday, November 20, 2011 "Dont you have to be missing teeth to drink at THE WRECK?" REPLY: LOL! And if you perform the electric slide.
K.B. January 15, 2012 at 05:07 PM
I didn't make fun of anybody's car being torched. If you recall Mr. Buckley, my husband was the one fighting the fire with our garden hose to try to save your car and the truck they through a cocktail at. We were worried for your safety as well as our own. Our house was right across from yours with huge pine trees that could have caught fire. I only made the observation of what I saw that night. Glad everyone was alright but my husband was the one out there before the firetrucks showed up. Have a good day Mr. Buckley

Anyway, when you lose your job, lose a parent && the one parent left shares no guidance, i was forced to bare the hard times&& temporary hard life making a home where i paid the tenent(owner) who never informed me the home had been ceasedby the bank
mq April 22, 2013 at 05:49 PM
In addition, my kind neighbor made a point to contact the paper to make a comment. We were neighbors &&respectful. No drugs were found in our possession either. I have a battle now to clear my background due to the arresting officers being allowed to report fact or fiction. Atleast I can say nowI am in a great place and make more then you ignorant pricks. I know the law and have experienced it. Tired of close minded morons speaking as if they are gods. And drunks...? Now I know I have more self control then that.
mq April 22, 2013 at 05:54 PM
