SYNOPSIS: Between 12/04/2012 and 02/08/2013, Paredes and Tinoco were involved in a kidnap-for-robbery/stalking case where Paredes and an unknown male suspect claimed to be “Ontario Police Officers.”
Paredes and the unknown suspect committed the robbery while wearing security guard web-gear, vests, and badges around their necks. Paredes had several replica firearms with his security equipment and he also drove a Dodge Charger, similar to a police vehicle. It appears that the pair targeted this victim from their prior contacts with him, however, one suspect remains outstanding, and Tinoco appears to have been trying to talk Paredes into committing more robberies. Santa Ana Police Detectives are looking for other potential victims as well as information on the second suspects.
