On January 26, 2014, at
approximately 5:35 a.m., Hesperia Deputy Brendan Motley initiated a traffic
stop on a pick-up truck matching a suspect vehicle description in several local
burglaries. The driver, identified as Ralph Anaya, was in possession of
evidence connecting him to two recent commercial burglaries.
Deputy Motley arrested and
booked Anaya at the West Valley Detention Center for PC459, burglary, with his
bail set at $175,000.
Detectives from the Hesperia
Station have subsequently linked Anaya to thirteen other commercial burglaries and
anticipate they will connect him with several more dating back to November
2013. Additional charges against Anaya are pending.
Anyone with information
regarding these crimes is asked to please contact Detective Jarrod Burns at the
Hesperia Station, 760-947-1500.
