Summary

On Tuesday, December 12, 2017 Justin Roberts went to the La Casitas MHP and began speaking to Moises Tzintzun. Moises doesn’t speak English very well so he went to get a neighbor to translate, and when he did so, Roberts jumped into his vehicle and fled. Moises gave chase in his other vehicle inside the MHP as Roberts tried to figure out how to get out of the park. Moises blocked Roberts in, but Roberts backed into a tree while maneuvering to get away, resulting in a flat tire. Moises continued to give chase and eventually caught and blocked the vehicle in. Roberts attempted to flee, but Moises and another man held the doors shut, keeping him trapped inside until deputies arrived.

Roberts was arrested for carjacking and booked at West Valley Detention Center, with bail set at $50,000.
