One adult male and two juveniles were arrested on December 22 in connection with a smash-and-grab burglary that occurred on November 21 in the City of Temecula.

On November 21 at 5:41 p.m., Southwest Station deputies responded to a business in the 40600 block of Winchester Road regarding two suspects who entered the business and began ripping cell phones from the displays. The suspects fled in a vehicle with stolen phones before deputies arrived, according to the Riverside Sheriff’s Department.

About 30 minutes later, deputies responded to a business in the 30600 block of Benton Road in the unincorporated area of French Valley regarding two suspects matching the same description ripping cell phones from the displays. The suspects once again entered a vehicle and fled the location with stolen phones, the department said.

The Southwest Station’s Robbery/Burglary Suppression Team (RBST) assumed the investigation and identified three suspects: 26-year-old Embra Jordan of Hemet, a 17-year-old female juvenile, and a 16-year-old male juvenile.

Jordan was located on December 22 near the 1000 block of S. Hewitt Street in the City of San Jacinto and was taken into custody without incident. He was booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center for conspiracy and theft-related charges and released the following day, according to jail records. 

The juveniles were also located and the same charges will be filed against them, the department said.

Anyone with information related to this case is asked to contact Deputy Adolfo Valtierra of the Southwest Station RBST Team at 951-696-3194.
