Three sex offenders were arrested on Tuesday during a Southwest Riverside County registered sex offender/probation compliance check.

On May 28, the Southwest Sheriff Station conducted a registered sex offender parole/probation compliance check at numerous residences in Southwest Riverside County. The operation encompassed personnel from the Southwest Sheriff’s Station and the Riverside County District Attorney Child Exploitation Team and their K9 Chewie.

Three sex offenders were found in violation of their court-ordered probation terms and were arrested for the violations, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. Twenty-year-old Joseph Hernandez of French Valley, 39-year-old Matthew Lopez of French Valley, and 41-year-old Scott Miller of Temecula were booked at the Cois Byrd Detention Center.

“The Southwest Sheriff’s Station aggressively pursues prosecution of those sex registrants who fail to comply with their registration requirements and probation/parole terms,” Sergeant Joe Narciso said.

The Southwest Sheriff Station plans to conduct similar compliance operations to verify that registered offenders live at their reported residences and comply with all probation or parole terms.

Riverside County residents can visit the Megan’s Law website at to familiarize themselves with the sex registrants in their community.

Anyone with information about this operation is asked to contact Deputy Au at the Southwest Station at 951–696–3000.
