On October 6, at approximately 3:26 p.m.

The victim of an attempted theft called to report that someone had just tried to steal her belongings from the inside of her vehicle while she slept.

The victim described the suspect as a male, Hispanic, wearing a green shirt, khaki pants and bright green shoes, riding a bicycle northbound on Main Street. Officers responding to the area located a male matching the description near the intersection of Main Street and Hollister Avenue and detained him while they could investigate.

The victim told the officers she had been taking a nap in her parked vehicle when the suspect reached inside the open passenger window, waking the victim as he tried to grab her cell phone, wallet and some food from the front seat. She positively identified the suspect the officers had detained and he was arrested for the attempted theft. The suspect, who had no identification, told the officers his name was Eric Sanchez and provided a birthdate of April 24, 1988. Later, after he was fingerprinted, the officers learned his real name and found out he had a no bail warrant for a parole violation out of another county.

The suspect was charged with the additional crime of providing false information to a police officer and the parole warrant. Adan Gallegos, 27, of Colton, was denied bail.
