VICTIM: Multiple


As part of an ongoing investigation regarding a series of burglaries linked between Big Bear and the High Desert, detectives from the Big Bear and Apple Valley Sheriff’s Stations served a search warrant on Thursday, September 18th, at a residence on the 100 block of Winding Lane in Big Bear City.

Execution of the warrant led to the discovery of narcotics and stolen property at the residence, resulting in the arrest of three female suspects identified as Christina Delonnie, Sara Gonzales and Cassandra Chavira. In addition to narcotics, approximately $5,000 worth of property was recovered, including priceless heirlooms, family photo albums belonging to unidentified victims, and antique property dating back to the 1920’s. The recovered stolen property has been linked to at least 14 burglaries between the Big Bear area and the High Desert.

All three suspects were booked into the Big Bear Jail on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance. Each of the suspects remain in custody in lieu of $25,000 bail. Suspect Chavira was booked on an additional charge for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for petty theft. Arraignment hearings in this matter are set for September 22, 2014 at the San Bernardino County Superior Court.

Additional suspects in the burglaries have been identified and the investigation is continuing. Updated information will be provided as it becomes available.

The Big Bear Sheriff’s Station is attempting to identify the owners of the attached photograph. Anyone having information regarding this matter is requested to contact the Big Bear Sheriff’s Station at (909) 866-0100.
