Two Winchester men, Randall Ulmer, 32, and Larry Anderson, 50, have been arrested and booked on suspicion of multiple felony charges in connection with a burglary and a “chop shop” in the City of Winchester.

On Monday at 7:20 a.m., deputies from the Perris Station responded to an alarm call in the 27000 Block of California Avenue in the City of Winchester. At the same time, the victim called dispatch and advised that her residence was burglarized and gave a suspect vehicle description.

Deputies located the vehicle nearby and conducted an investigative enforcement stop. Ulmer and Anderson were detained after deputies found the victim’s credit cards and other personal property in their possession, authorities said.

During the investigation, a search warrant was authored and served in the 34000 Block of Marvin Hull Road, where a “chop shop” was located on the property. Stolen vehicles and vehicle parts, along with numerous stolen items belonging to the victim, were discovered, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

The Riverside Auto-Theft Interdiction Detail Task Force recovered nine stolen vehicles with an estimated value of over $160,000, the sheriff’s department said.

Ulmer and Anderson were later transported and booked into the county jail on suspicion of multiple felony charges.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact RBST Investigator Rooker at the Perris Station at 951-776-1099, or the Perris Station at (951) 210-1000.
