On 9/21/16 at approximately 2:17 a.m. a Murrieta Police Officer was conducting extra patrol along the Clinton Keith Corridor when he observed a vehicle drive behind the Rite Aid at Clinton Keith Road and Palomar Road. The vehicle was parked near a donation bin and the officer observed the occupants walking away from the running vehicle. The officer stopped and detained the occupants to investigate their suspicious behavior. A second officer conducted a records check on the license plate. That records check revealed the vehicle was reported stolen out of Lake Elsinore on 9/19/16.
The occupants of the vehicle, identified as Rudolph McCreight and Savanah Loose, were arrested. A search of the vehicle revealed narcotics paraphernalia as well as burglary tools. Mr. McCreight and Ms. Loose were both arrested for auto theft, possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools and booked into the Southwest Detention Center.
