DATE/TIME: May 22, 2019 / 2:38pm

INCIDENT: Search Warrant

LOCATION: 14890 El Evado #101, Victorville

SUMMARY: On May 22, 2019, deputies from the Victorville Police Department’s Gang Team, assisted by Deputies and Detectives from the station and Code Enforcement Officers from the City of Victorville, served a search warrant at ASAP Barber Shop in the 14800 block of El Evado Road.

The search warrant was authored and issued as a result of numerous reports of criminal activity in the shopping center where the barber shop is located. One of the most recent incidents at the location occurred on April 25, 2019 when a group of individuals in front of Mike’s Liquor were the target of a drive by shooting. Although multiple rounds were fired, and businesses were damaged, none of the individuals were struck.

During the service of the search warrant, it was discovered that the owner of ASAP, Anthony Allen Waters, 40-year old Victorville resident, and his employees were providing services to customers without the required licensing from the State of California. Code Enforcement Officers cited Waters and his employees, and the business was ordered to close until proper licensing is obtained.

Several arrests were made, including Waters who was found to have outstanding warrants and Dangello Keesee, a 24-year old Victorville resident. In addition to providing barber services without a valid license, Keesee was identified as one of the suspects in the April 25, 2019 shooting and a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Keesee remains in custody at High Desert Detention Center for attempted murder. He is scheduled to appear in Victorville Superior Court on May 24, 2019.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Deputy A. Hylin at the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911 or Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001.
