On November 13, 2019, The La Quinta Special Enforcement Team was actively patrolling the parking lot area of the 79900 block of Highway 111. The team noticed a known thief quickly walking through the parking lot attempting to avoid detection. The subject entered a 2019 Chevrolet Express U-Haul van, and quickly drove off, side-swiping a parked vehicle. A traffic enforcement stop was conducted and the driver, Keith Riesgo, 42-years-old of Long Beach was detained. Riesgo was placed under arrest for two outstanding theft warrants and hit-and-run. A representative of U-Haul was contacted, and it was determined the vehicle was in the process of being reported stolen out of Long Beach. The vehicle was returned to the U-Haul. Riesgo was booked at the county jail in Indio.
The La Quinta Special Enforcement Team is asking anyone with additional information to contact Deputy Iniguez at the Thermal Sheriff’s Station by calling (760)-863-8990.
