On January 18, 2018, deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department, responded to the 112000 block of Terra Vista Parkway for a welfare check of a 65-year-old female after someone called in concerned for the female. When deputies entered the residence, the victim was confined to a chair and could barely speak. During the investigation, deputies learned the victim had not been moved from the chair in almost five days. The caretaker, Brandon Carl’s was refusing to look after the victim even though he was the appointed caretaker. Sebastian Trujillo, Carl’s friend also lived in the home and did not try to help the victim.

The living conditions were not suitable and had dog feces scattered throughout the home. The victim could not stand on her own. Medical personnel responded and transported the victim to the hospital for treatment. During a search of the residence, deputies located several stolen license plates, shaved keys, methamphetamine, and a loaded firearm.

Both suspects were subsequently arrested and booked into West Valley Detention Center, with a bail amount of $50,000 each. Additionally, they each had outstanding warrants.
