On Thursday, December 23rd, 2010 at approximately 10:34 a.m., Sheriff’s Service Specialist Barbara Calvert was dispatched to a report of a commercial burglary at a storage facility where several storage units were broken into.
One of the storage units had a quad and a Rhino stolen from it. The items taken were stored in the same garage, but belonged to different family members. A few days later, one of the victims located and recovered his quad that was parked in the desert near North Star, in the City of Victorville. Then a family member located what sounded like the other victim’s stolen Rhino listed for sale on Craigslist. An inquiry was made and the photograph provided by the person attempting to sell the Rhino matched the stolen property. The victim brought this new information to the Victorville Police Station’s Detective Bureau where a phone call was made and arrangements to meet and purchase the Rhino from the suspected thieves. The suspects arranged for a meeting in the same area of the desert where the quad was recovered from. The meeting was successful in recovering the victim’s Rhino, but the suspect evaded deputies and fled the area. In his haste, the suspect left behind evidence that linked him to the Craigslist advertisement and other information that revealed the suspect’s identity as Terrence Scott, 21.
A search warrant was served at suspect Scott’s residence in the 13000 block of San Carlos Ct. Victorville. As deputies and detectives served the search warrant, suspect Scott fled from a second story window and fled the area. Through investigation it was learned that Alhakim Shabazz aided suspect Scott by harboring him in his residence. Alhakim Shabazz was later arrested on December 30th, 2010 on charges of PC32-Aiding, abetting or harboring a fugitive.
Ongoing investigation led to the arrest of suspect Jeremy Hall, 20 who was arrested and booked on charges on PC459-Commercial burglary and PC10851-Grand Theft Auto. Suspect Terrence Scott is still wanted for questioning in reference to this investigation. Anyone with information to his whereabouts is asked to contact Detective John Wickum at 760-241-2911 or remain anonymous by calling We Tip at 800-78-CRIME.
