Investigators with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department believe Landeros may have used his car, outfitted with red and blue lights, to commit crimes while impersonating a law officer.

Landeros was arrested at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 11 for possession of an assault rifle, possession of ammunition, and child endangerment. Landeros was also in possession of a law enforcement badge and law enforcement equipment with him indicating he may have impersonated a law enforcement officer in the past.

Investigators said Landeros' vehicle, a 2015 white Mercedez Benz, was equipped with red and blue flashing LED lights and believe Landeros may have used these items to commit crimes. They said they think Landeros may have contacted unsuspecting victims posing as a law enforcement officer and that many of the victims may not have noticed a crime being committed.

If anyone believes they were contacted by Landeros and have any information that would help investigators, they are asked to call Investigator Alfaro or Investigator Manjarrez at (951) 955-1700.
