Diamond Bar- During the Blue cut Fire on August 18, a Diamond Bar resident was one of three suspects who attempted to steal on the 8600 block of Swarthout Canyon of the San Bernardino area during the time of mandatory evacuations.

The SBSD deputies responded to suspicious activity at a home that was located within the evacuation areas. Once deputies arrived, they made contact with the suspects who had brought a flat bed truck and were attempting to leave.

The three suspects were identified as 29 year-old Riverside resident Trevor Sanchez, 27 year-old Diamond Bar resident Natasha Rovinsky, and 27 year-old  Jurupa resident Daniel Mervine. They had informed the deputy that they were picking up property for a friend that resided on that property.

According to SBSD, “Deputies made contact with the property owner who advised that he did not give anyone permission to take his property.”

The three suspects were then taken into custody without further incident and will be booked for Looting and Grand Theft Auto.

If anyone has additional information related to the suspects who were involved, you are urged to contact Sheriff’s Central Station at (909) 387-3545.
