Lake Elsinore: Man who Robbed Victims Pretending to Sell a Car over the Internet Arrested

During the past year, Lake Elsinore Sheriff Station deputies investigated several complaints of theft stemming from an individual offering to sell a vehicle. The suspect would meet the victims at a location and take their cash offer, through force or fear, without turning over the vehicle.

The Lake Elsinore Station Detective Bureau identified additional victims during the investigation from the cities of Moreno Valley, Perris, Riverside, and San Diego, along with the suspect, Jarbi Recinos , a 23-year-old resident of Eastvale.

On Thursday, October 3, 2019, investigators located Recinos in the area of Clinton Keith Road and Interstate 15 in the city of Wildomar. Recinos was arrested without incident and booked at the Cois Byrd Detention Center for robbery.

The investigation is on-going and anyone with further information on this case is encouraged to contact Investigator Esteban Carranza from the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station by calling (951) 245-3300.
