Public Viewing Of Stolen Goods From Lake Elsinore To Be Scheduled, Police Say

Jewelry, hardware, air compressors, televisions, cameras, computers and smart phones are among the items retrieved by police during an arrest this week.

A public viewing of items traced to burglaries in Escondido, Lake Elsinore and Temecula will be held in the near future, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department announced.

The items were discovered during a car theft investigation. Around 11 a.m. Thursday, a county code enforcement officer located a stolen vehicle in the front yard of a residence at 2026 Willowbrook Lane in Perris, sheriff's Sgt. Glenn Williams said.

Deputies were called to assist and conducted a search of the property, opening the garage to find jewelry, hardware, air compressors, televisions, cameras, computers and smart phones traced to the burglaries, Williams said.

Deputies also came upon "a large quantity of methamphetamine" and guns, Williams said.

The occupant of the house, 40-year-old Benigno Jose Rodriguez, was arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of receiving stolen property, possession of controlled substances and illegal possession of a firearm.

Rodriguez was booked into the Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta, where he's being held in lieu of $1 million bail.

Actually yes - I appreciate your concern for our welfare, but the computer only holds one dear memory we would like back - the pictures of my mom that passed away only days after the computer was stolen - boring for some - but truly precious for us.

Thank god there's somewhere Lake Elsinore residents can look down upon as being even more crime-ridden than Elsinore is. Thank you Willobrook for that distinction. And thank Benigno for making all this possible. I grip my steering wheel and mumble to my self "don't get out of the car, don't get out of the car" over and over until I've passed through that robber's roost known as Willowbrook.

If there was anything that really interested the police on my PC, they could turn it over to a computer forensics specialist who could determine the IP I last logged onto the net over, then they could go to my ISP with a search warrant and they they'd know who and where I am. Then again, maybe my PC's hard drive is completely encrypted.

I wouldn't be surprised if you could just call the Sheriff's office and ask to speak to whoever handles the recovered property and then leave your serial number with them and they could check it before this showing of stolen property. It probably wouldn't be too much trouble. At least they might be able to give you an idea when the showing will be scheduled.
