Redlands Police Press Releases

The Redlands Police Department will be holding an eight hour training class for multi-unit rental apartment managers/owners and single family rental property owners. The program is focused on education and reducing crime in apartments, condominium complexes and single family rental housing throughout the city.

The class will be held at Redlands Community Center, 111 W Lugonia Ave., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 15. Please RSVP by Oct. 8. Lunch will be provided. Cost is $5 to cover cost of lunch from Subway.

Redlands Police arrested two men suspected in a string of armed robberies in the downtown area over the past two weeks.

An officer was responding to an unrelated call when he spotted two men near the intersection of Sun Avenue and Orange Street matching the descriptions of the suspects in three armed robberies. Officers contacted the men and located two cell phones which they later determined had been stolen during an armed robbery at the Krikorian Theater, 340 N. Eureka St., on Sept. 12.

Detectives served search warrants at the men’s residences and located additional evidence and stolen property linking both men to armed robberies in Redlands.

Police arrested a 34-year-old Redlands man for murder in the death of a 17-year-old Redlands boy Wednesday night.

Police arrested 34-year-old Erlindo Rodriguez Jr. of Redlands after the body of the Redlands East Valley High School student was discovered shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 17, in an alley in the 1000 block of Post Street. Redlands Fire Department firefighter/paramedics responded and pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

The Redlands Police Department will be cracking down on drunken and distracted drivers along with other traffic violations during a series of targeted traffic patrols through the end of September. 

Targeted DUI saturation patrols are scheduled from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Thursdays, Sept. 11, 18 and 25.

Redlands Police traffic officers will also be on patrol throughout the day Thursday, Sept. 11, and Wednesday, Sept. 17, on the lookout for drivers using cell phones, texting or other dangerous distractions that take their eyes and their minds off the road.

Extra patrols will be out during the day on Fridays, Sept. 12, 19 and 26, targeting enforcement of traffic violations such as speeding, running stop signs and red lights and other actions that are the primary factors in most traffic collisions.

Careless motorists as well as riders get special scrutiny

The Redlands Police Department will be conducting specialized motorcycle safety enforcement operations Sept. 12 and 19 in an effort to lower deaths and injuries. Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur. Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers and riders alike that can lead to motorcycle crashes. They will be cracking down both on those operating regular vehicles and motorcycles who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, making illegal turns, or any other dangerous violation.

A DUI/Drivers License checkpoint over the weekend, part of a nationwide campaign targeting drunken and drugged drivers, resulted in two arrests for driving under the influence and additional citations for other vehicle code violations.

A total of 209 cars passed through the checkpoint in the southbound lanes of Tennessee Street at Park Avenue beginning at 10 pm. Friday, Aug. 29, through 3 a.m. Saturday.

In addition to the two DUI arrests, police cited two unlicensed drivers and another driver for driving with a suspended license. Two drivers were cited for possessing open containers of alcohol in their vehicles.

A fundraiser to support the Redlands Police Department’s Narcotics K-9 Unit culminates at noon on Saturday, Aug. 30, as Redlands Chief of Police Mark A. Garcia will participate in a police canine demonstration at The Taco Shack, 510 E. State St.

Beginning at noon the public is invited to attend the fundraising event with music, raffles and prizes. During the event, Chief Garcia will participate in a police canine demonstration as a patrol dog sinks his teeth into his duties.

Since Aug. 11, Taco Shack customers have had the opportunity to donate to the Redlands Police K-9 program and be recognized with their names on the walls of the restaurant. In addition to the Taco Shack, major sponsors include Toyota of Redlands and Furry Face.

A DUI/Drivers License checkpoint over the weekend, part of a nationwide campaign targeting drunken and drugged drivers, resulted in three arrests for driving under the influence and another three arrests on drug related charges.

A total of 225 cars passed through the checkpoint in the eastbound lanes of Redlands Boulevard at 7th Street beginning at 10 pm. Saturday, Aug. 23, through 3 a.m. Sunday.

In addition to the three DUI arrests, police arrested two people for drug possession and one for possession of drug paraphernalia. One driver was cited for driving without a license.

Labor Day weekend is coming up. For many Americans, that means an extra day off, backyard and beach barbecues, visiting friends and family, and the unofficial end of the summer season. Unfortunately, it also means a sharp increase in drunk-driving-related fatalities. Now through Labor Day, Sept. 1, the Redlands Police Department will be aggressively targeting drunk and drugged drivers as part of a nationwide effort to end impaired driving and save lives. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign will pair increased public awareness with high-visibility enforcement, resulting in fewer drunk drivers on Redlands streets.

Redlands Police will be looking for impaired drivers throughout the city with plans in place for DUI/Drivers License checkpoints on Aug. 23 in the southbound lanes of Tennessee Street at Park Avenue and Aug. 29 in the eastbound lanes of Redlands Boulevard at 7th Street. Both will be conducted between the hours of 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. A checkpoint was also held in the southbound lanes of Cajon Street at Cypress Avenue on Aug. 15 as part of this campaign.

An all-night standoff with a suicidal man who locked himself in his vehicle in a gym parking lot Wednesday afternoon ended Thursday morning, Aug. 21, when the man fatally shot himself.

Police crisis negotiators spent more than 17 hours talking to the 50-year-old man by phone as he sat locked in his vehicle with a gun in the parking lot of LA Fitness at 1035 Parkford Drive. Paramedics stood by ready to provide treatment. Shortly before 7:30 a.m. a shot was fired in the vehicle. Police approached the vehicle and found the man critically injured.

Redlands Firefighter Paramedics treated the man on scene and in the AMR ambulance as he was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
