Soboba Tribal Member Arrested for Robbery, Soboba Cooperated

It appears that the Soboba people aren't earning enough per capita to keep them from becoming criminals. Pechanga has the same problem. Is this what is meant by self-reliance?

After a 12-hour standoff, authorities on Tuesday arrested a Soboba tribal member suspected of robbing a woman and taking refuge on the Soboba Indian Reservation.

Riverside County sheriff's investigators tracked David Neil Morreo, 34, (who has many felony arrests) Monday afternoon to a home in San Jacinto, where he barricaded himself inside before a SWAT team invaded the home at 3 a.m. according to a sheriff's report.

Sheriff's officials said tribal officials cooperated fully with deputies during the investigation.

The Sheriff's Department and the tribe have been locked in a dispute about access for deputies in emergencies or investigations on the reservation. Sheriff Stanley Sniff has threatened to bring criminal charges against any members of the tribe who impede deputies in their duties

Congratulations to Riverside County Sheriff's Deputies for putting their lives on the line to protect us.
