Moreno worked for the Sheriff’s Department for the last 16 months as a correctional deputy, a nonsworn position, and was assigned to the jail in French Valley, Rodriguez said. Correctional deputies do not carry guns, he added.

Sheriff’s investigators have notified local law enforcement agencies as well as the U.S. Border Patrol that they are looking for Moreno, Rodriguez said.

They have also contacted Moreno’s family members in the San Diego area, he said.

Anyone with information about Moreno is asked to call Detective L. Nering at the Perris Sheriff’s Station at 951-210-1000.

  1. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
