***** UPDATE *****

For the past 6 weeks, Yucaipa Detectives have been conducting an extensive investigation into this theft. Through investigative leads, and with the help of concerned citizens, detectives were able to identify some of the involved suspects.

The investigation revealed that Randy Gruber owned a raised white Chevy truck, which he had previously used in other patio furniture thefts in the City of Corona.

As part of CA Governor Brown’s AB109 Early Release program, Gruber was on active Post Release Community Supervision out of Riverside County, and was currently absconding from his probation officer. Gruber had an active “No Bail” warrant for his arrest.

On March 19, 2018, San Bernardino Police located and arrested Gruber for his warrant. Gruber was transported back to Riverside County for his warrant. Yucaipa detectives responded to Riverside County jail and interviewed Gruber. Detectives conducted further investigation and identified Shelby Roe and Joshua Gleason as two of the suspects involved in the theft. Detectives obtained arrest warrants for both Gleason and Roe. Roe is currently on formal felony probation out of San Bernardino County.

On Wednesday, April 4, 2018, Yucaipa detectives located both Roe and Gleason in the City of San Bernardino. Both suspects were then booked into the county jail.

Gruber remains in-custody in Riverside County, where he is being held without bail.

Roe remains in-custody in San Bernardino County, where she is being held without bail.

Gleason remains in-custody in San Bernardino County, where he is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.

On April 6, 2018, the case was presented to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office for review and all 3 suspects were charged with one felony count of PC 487 – Grand Theft.


On February 20, 2018 at approximately 0336 hours, unknown suspects removed $5,500 worth of outdoor patio furniture from the victim’s business located in the 31500 block of Avenue E.
