Summary

 

SUMMARY:  

 

 

In March 2014, residential burglaries in the small mountain community of Green Valley Lake reached an all time high. Local newspapers reported concern from the startling rise in the number of burglaries in the area. One newspaper mentioned a “350% increase” in burglaries.

 

The Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station has been working diligently to bring individuals responsible for these burglaries to justice and most importantly, to re-instil in the community the tranquil, peaceful, and safe environment it has enjoyed in the past. With the cooperation of community leaders and residents and the use of innovative proactive patrol, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is well on its way in accomplishing these objectives.

 

Through vigorous investigations from deputies and detectives and with the application of advanced technology, the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Multi-Enforcement Team and detectives arrested David Allan Munoz of Banning and Max McCracken of Running Springs on charges linking them to the Green Valley Lake burglaries.

 

Munoz was arrested in Banning on July 17, 2014 and McCracken was arrested in Running Springs on July 18, 2014. Munoz and McCracken are awaiting preliminary hearing on July 31, 2014 and August 1, 2014 respectively. Kevin Lee Maze, age 43, of Running Springs was convicted for burglary and is serving his sentence in state prison. Evan Hadjes, age 21, of Running Springs is currently in a San Bernardino County corrections facility awaiting jury trial scheduled on August 4, 2014.

 

The number of residential burglaries in Green Valley Lake have decreased tremendously since March 2014. The Sheriff’s Department has not received any reports of residential burglaries in the community in the months of June and July. 

 

Anyone with any information regarding this investigation is urged to call the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station at (909) 336-0600 or can remain anonymous by contacting the We-Tip Hotline at (800) 78-CRIME.
