On May 28, 2020, about 5:28 PM, deputies responded to the USA Gas Station located at 22990 Alessandro Blvd., Moreno Valley, regarding a robbery. The suspect, a Hispanic male adult, entered the store, removed a revolver from his left pant pocket and demanded money from the clerk. After removing the money from the register, the suspect entered a silver Volkswagen Passat and fled the area westbound on Alessandro Blvd. Members of the Moreno Valley Station Robbery Burglary Suppression Team (RBST) assumed the investigation immediately and began utilizing several investigative tools, to include the citywide camera system. Through the diligent work of RBST members from the Moreno Valley Station and Perris Station, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Crime Analysts and the public, this suspect was connected to at least 7 additional robberies within the cities of Moreno Valley, Perris, Murrieta, San Jacinto, Nuevo and Wildomar.
On June 9, 2020, the Hemet Police Department attempted a vehicle stop on a Silver Volkswagen Passat based on a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department suspect flyer. The vehicle immediately attempted to evade the Hemet Police Officer and a vehicle pursuit took place which ended in the city of Menifee. The driver, Gabriel Rudy Hernandez, was positively identified as the suspect in all 7 robberies. Additionally, several items of evidence were located inside Hernandez’s vehicle that connected him to the robberies. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Moreno Valley Station Deputy Scott Anderson at 951-486-6700 or Perris Station Deputy Joshua Greco at 951-210-1000.
