Police seek suspect for big rig robbery and cargo theft during street takeover


The San Bernardino Police Department has identified a suspect believed to have been involved in a frightening cargo theft incident caught on camera late last month.

The incident occurred on April 24 near the intersection of 5th Street and Mt. Vernon Avenue in San Bernardino, California.

During a street takeover, several people surrounded a semi truck attempting to pass through the area and pulled the driver off of his seat and out of the truck.

Police say that Victor Manuel Alanis was one of the people who opened the truck’s trailer and began stealing the furniture inside.

“Apparently, Victor has been sitting on the floor at his house, so he and his friends decided to pull the driver out of the truck, open up the cargo container, and score some furniture for themselves,” the San Bernardino Police Department said in a social media release.

Police are seeking public assistance in locating Alanis, who they say is wanted on a $200,000 warrant for robbery.

Alanis is believed to be driving a maroon Chevy Silverado with a gray door. The license plate number for the vehicle is 6X47132.

“There were plenty more people out there with Victor, and the street takeover crew definitely has our attention. We’ll be out there making arrests and towing whips, so either take it elsewhere or save up for your ticket, bail, and tow fees,” San Bernardino Police warned.
