On Tuesday, November 19th, deputies from the Major Enforcement Team of the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department were conducting surveillance in and around the area of 4th Street in the City of Rancho Cucamonga, due to an increase in reports of stolen third seat thefts occuring in that area. Deputies Justin Long and Narcie Sousa watched as a man, later identified as the suspect, Geovanny Castillo, brake into a 2013 GMC Yukon and remove the 3rd row seats.
As the deputies approached Castillo, he ran and hid from them. Deputy Mike Mason and his bloodhound partner, Deja, were requested and responded to the location. Deja was presented with articles containing the suspect's scent and within minutes led deputies to where Castillo was hiding.
Castillo was arrested without further incident.
Deputies Long and Sousa located additional stolen third row seats in Castillo's car.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is urged to contact the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to contact the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463) or you may leave information on the We-Tip website at www.wetip.com
