18000 block of Eucalyptus Road, unincorporated area of Lake Elsinore
Sergeant Joe Borja
On Friday, June 10, 2011, at about 7:30 a.m. deputies assigned to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, Lake Elsinore Station, Burglary Suppression Team, conducted a stolen property investigation.
The investigation began when they were contacted by the Ditch Witch Company, located in the state of Colorado.
The Ditch Witch Company advised that one of their stolen trackers was for sale on a popular online auction website, and they believed the tracker was physically located at a residence in the unincorporated area of Lake Elsinore.
A tracker is an expensive sonar type device used by construction workers to avoid utility and electrical lines.
During the investigation the deputies contacted a male subject who was trying to sell the tracker online. The male subject was later identified as forty-one-year-old Lake Elsinore resident David Parnell. Parnell requested they meet at his residence located on the 18000 block of Eucalyptus Road, in the unincorporated area of Lake Elsinore.
The deputies contacted Parnell regarding the investigation. The deputies positively identified the tracker as stolen property by its serial number and description. After the deputies determined the tracker was stolen, they identified themselves as deputy sheriffs by displaying their department-issued Riverside County Sheriff's badges and told Parnell the tracker was reported stolen. Parnell immediately became physically aggressive with the deputies and a struggle ensued. During the struggle, Parnell summoned a male friend, who was later identified as twenty-nine-year-old Lee Marels, of England. Marels attempted to interfere with the deputies as they tried to restrain Parnell. Both Parnell and Marels were taken into custody. Parnell and Marels sustained minor injuries and were transported to a local hospital where they received treatment. Parnell and Marels were later transported and booked into the Southwest Detention Center for 148(a)(1) of the California Penal Code, resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer in the performance of their duties.
The investigation into the stolen property is still ongoing. Anyone who has additional information regarding this incident is urged to contact Investigator Cornett at the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, Lake Elsinore Station at (951) 245-3300

Sergeant David Sanches
On Sunday, June 12, 2011, at about 6:50 AM, officers from the Lake Elsinore Police Department responded to a report of a single vehicle traffic collision at the intersection of Lake Street and Lakeshore Drive in the city of Lake Elsinore.
Upon arrival, officers observed a white Ford F150 truck wedged between a block wall and a utility pole on the sidewalk. As a result of their investigation it was determined that the driver, (sole occupant) of the truck was traveling north on Lakeshore Drive and attempted to make a right turn (east) onto Lake Street. The driver lost control of the vehicle, hit the center divider and damaged a roadway sign. The vehicle continued across the westbound lanes of traffic of Lake Street and came to rest on the sidewalk and wedged between a block retaining wall at the Terra Cotta Middle School and a utility pole.
The driver was identified as Saul Pena Preciado, Hispanic male, 21 years old of Lake Elsinore. Preciado received minor injuries as a result of the collision and was taken to Inland Valley Medical Center for treatment.
As a result of the investigation, Preciado was arrested for driving under the influence and was booked into the Southwest Detention Center.
Southern California Edison responded to the scene to inspect the condition of the pole and determined no immediate repairs were needed. There was no power loss as a result of this incident.
The Lake Elsinore Police Department thanks the citizens that provided statements for this incident and anyone with additional information can contact Officer Stutler at the Lake Elsinore Station 951-245-3300.
