Vista, California - A multi-agency Probation compliance sweep occurred in the City of Vista. Deputies and Officers conducted 28 contacts to determine if there were any conditions of their release being violated.

This operation is a part of the Regional Realignment Response Group. The goal is to track known offenders and their associates. Deputies then tie that information to actual crimes and devote resources to address safety issues in our neighborhoods. Realignment went into effect in 2011, in response to a federal court order for California to reduce overcrowding in its prisons. It shifts responsibility for non-violent criminals from the state to local level by sending some offenders to county jails instead of prisons.

The following were arrested during the probation sweep:

  • Morales, Juan Carlos, 19
  • Pearson, Timothy, 48
  • Poling, Johnny, 38
  • Pina, James, 52
  • Soto, Rogelio, 35
