MONTEREY PARK (CNS) – Police today sought public help to find two tattooed men wanted for alleged credit card fraud and vehicle burglaries in Monterey Park and the greater San Gabriel Valley.
Arrest warrants have been issued for Brian Renteria, 25, and Jerry Ristich, 27, Monterey Park police Lt. Carrie Mazelin said.
Police released photos of the men.
Renteria, a parolee, is known to be armed and dangerous, Mazelin said. He is Hispanic, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, 230-300 pounds, with brown hair and eyes.
He has the letters SSG tattooed in capital letters on the right side of his face, according to Mazelin.
Renteria is believed to be a transient, staying in motels in the San Gabriel Valley area.
Ristich, of Monterey Park, is Hispanic, 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 190 pounds, and has brown hair and eyes. He has tattoos on his neck.
The men were identified by police during an investigation of a vehicle burglary near Alhambra and Emerson avenues in Monterey Park in January, Mazelin said. Renteria is also wanted for parole violation, and may have been involved in burglaries from daycare centers in the Arcadia area.
A vehicle believed to have been used by the suspects was impounded recently, and police recovered several designer purses and wallets, as well as keys to luxury automobiles.
Anyone who may have been a crime victim can call police to examine the recovered property. Anyone knowing about the case was urged to call police. The contact person is Detective J. Frescas, who can be reached at (626) 307-1241.
