Riverside police officer is suspect in robbery
David Reeves Jr., 28, of Moreno Valley allegedly tried to rob an Auto Zone store at 23510 Sunnymead Blvd. about 9:03 p.m., according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Moreno Valley police detained Reeves one minute after store owners called police, authorities said.
Reeves joined the Riverside Police Department in 2001 as a cadet, said Sgt. Jaybee Brennan, a spokeswoman for the department. He was sworn in as a peace officer in 2002.
He was “separated” from his employment the day after the arrest occurred, Brennan said.
