Anyone with more information was urged to call Deputy David Jones at the Riverside County Sheriff's Department-Palm Desert Station at (760) 836-1600 or Crime Stoppers at (760) 341-7867.

Five people have been arrested in connection with residential burglaries reported in Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert, a sheriff's spokesman said Monday.

Specific locations of the burglaries were not disclosed. A Sheriff's Department account includes the following:

Palm Desert Station Burglary Suppression personnel investigated the burglaries, which occurred during night and early morning hours.

"During the investigation it was revealed that Gabriela Vidal, 28 years old and resident of Cathedral City, used a credit card to pre-order an automotive part from a local auto parts store," sheriff's Cpl. Angel Ramos said. "The credit card in question had been reported stolen from one of the burglaries."

Vidal returned to the auto parts store on Friday Nov. 16 to pick up the item she ordered, Ramos said. Palm Desert Station personnel were waiting for Vidal and arrested her.

"Also arrested at the location and with Vidal were Ruben Corona, 25 years and Eliazar Quintero, 30 years old, both residents of Cathedral City," Ramos said. "Corona was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and Quintero was arrested for two felony warrants."

On Monday Nov. 19 investigators went to the 32200 block of Sky Blue Water Trail in Cathedral City, Ramos said. During a probation search of the property, they allegedly found a loaded firearm, illicit drugs and stolen property.

"Arrested at the location were Miguel Angel Romo, 30 years old and Anita Maria Martinez, 37 years old. Both Romo and Martinez reside at the residence searched," Ramos said.

All suspects were booked at the Riverside County Jail in Indio, Ramos said.

Gee Regina, I watch the LA news every night and guess what, all the crooks are black. I guess we just can't trust them and the world needs to hide when you and the others walk down the same side we do. Please, take your racist blackness somewhere else where it might work but it doesn't fly with me. Everywhere has crime, every race has criminals. Things are getting worse for everyone and drugs are destroying this country faster than the idiots that live her can. This has nothing to do about race.

you all have some sort of hate in you, everyone has something against any other race which is not their own. its just a fact, the news media favors a certain group over the others so they make the rest look bad. its not the same as it used to be. true things are getting worse by a lame president who is not doing his job with a strain economy making even more people commit burgleries, even those who steal from a business be it banking or the like and or politicians who take from the government they work for. so every group has thieves yes its not a racial thing, but these are the people that are targeted the most so they just rather keep targeting these groups than to target their own.. so be it... everyone needs to calm down and try to be friendly by doing this we can all get along without pointing fingers... j.c.

we should all smile more and greet each other like they do in some small towns out there in america the beautiful... mexico is the friendliest country in the world according to most poles they have conducted. anyone aiming at a different group needs to get a recheck and look in the mirrow or at your own race. see what you find. lets be good to each other and say hi when you are out there.. this is all i have to say. .. take care have a nice day..
