File # MM213330001


In November 2021, deputies from the Moreno Valley Station responded to a report of a vehicle burglary that occurred in the 14500 block of Innovation Drive in Riverside. During that burglary, multiple laptops were stolen from a vehicle. Moreno Valley Station’s Robbery Burglary Suppression Team (RBST) assumed the months long investigation.

On October 6, 2022, RBST, with the assistance of the Moreno Valley Station’s Problem Oriented Policing (POP) Team, executed a search warrant at a residence in the 17300 block of Jupiter Avenue in Victorville. During service of the warrant, three of the stolen laptops were recovered, as well as an illegal firearm.

Amado Morales

The suspect in possession of the laptops was identified as Amado Morales, a 27-year-old resident of Victorville. While at that residence, Miguel Morales, a 25-year-old resident of Victorville, was found to be in possession of an illegal firearm. Amado was transported and booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center for possession of the stolen property. Miguel was arrested and later released pending a filing with the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office for weapons violations.
