9 Arrested in Fallbrook Warrant Sweep

Three out of five probationers were arrested on violation.

Nine people were arrested by San Diego Sheriff's deputies during a warrant sweep and probation check in Fallbrook Monday.

Deputies and probation officers knocked on doors in the Fallbrook, De Luz, Rainbow and Bonsall areas as part of the holiday watch safety operations looking for people with outstanding warrants for DUI, reckless driving, hit-and-run and domestic violence.

Of the five probationers contacted, three were arrested. Another six were taken in on felony or misdemeanor warrants. All nine were booked into Vista Jail.

The sweep was meant to ensure people on probation are following their terms of release and the focus was on traffic-related warrants in an attempt to make the roads safer for coming New Year's Eve weekend.

One person arrested for driving on a suspended license was also being investigated in connection with an indoor marijuana grow.

The following people were arrested on suspicion of violating probation and felony or misdemeanor drug possession:

  • Jeff Jones, 67
  • Jessi Koenig, 26
  • Melissa Fleming, 31
  • Richard Perillo, 21
  • Roland Phillips, 50
  • Suzanne Steinmeier, 33
  • Elizabeth Tetu, 50
  • Tangie Winder, 46
  • Todd Winegar, 41

The Sheriff's Department is asking people with outstanding warrants to turn themselves in. For information on warrants and bail notices, click here.
