On January 25, 2021, at 8:26 AM, Moreno Valley Station deputies were dispatched to the 23000 block of Ironwood Ave. city of Moreno Valley, regarding a robbery.

Several items related to the robbery were located and Thrash along with a second suspect, Donna Figueroa (52) of Moreno Valley were taken into custody without incident. Thrash and Figueroa were later booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Moreno Valley Station RBST Deputy Jeff Andrews at 951-486-6700.
