Suspect Arrested for Five Felonies After Deputies Locate a Loaded Rifle in His Vehicle

DATE/TIME: August 17, 2022 / 1:47 a.m.

INCIDENT: Felon in Possession of a Firearm

LOCATION: Davidson Street and Tippecanoe Avenue, San Bernardino 

SUSPECT(S): Larry Cabrera, 29-year-old resident of San Bernardino 

VICTIM(S): State of California 

SUMMARY: On Wednesday, August 17, 2022, at approximately 1:47 a.m., Sergeant J. Blankenship observed a vehicle exit off the Interstate 10 freeway at a high rate of speed. The vehicle almost caused a traffic collision with another motorist on the roadway. Blankenship stopped the vehicle in the area of Davidson Street and Tippecanoe Avenue. The driver, later identified as Larry Cabrera, fled on foot from the vehicle. 

Deputies located a loaded AR-15 short-barrel rifle in the front seat of the abandoned vehicle. The rifle had a pistol grip, telescoping stock, and a barrel length which was less than 16 inches. The rifle had a loaded high-capacity magazine which contained 25 rounds of .556 ammunition. The rifle did not display a serial number which is consistent with a "ghost gun" style firearm.

Deputies conducted a search of the area and located Cabrera at a nearby residence. Cabrera was taken into custody without incident and was booked at the Central Detention Center on five felony charges. During a records check, it was determined Cabrera was a convicted felon.
