Doreen Watkins and James Heflin are suspected of possessing stolen property that was taken from Troop 332 on March 8, according to a written statement by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Watkins, 54, was arrested on March 17, after authorities received information that some of the stolen property was allegedly seen at a home in the 33000 block of Paradise Lane.

Officers subsequently served a search warrant and allege that about 80 percent of the property was recovered at the home.

On March 20, officers arrested 45-year-old Heflin at a home in Desert Hot Springs, also on suspicion of possessing stolen property.

Authorities said the troop’s trailer was recovered at another home in Desert Hot Springs, and more gear was allegedly located at a home in Perris.

The pair was booked into jail at the Southwest Detention Center.
