On Wednesday, June 5, sheriff’s deputies assigned to Highland’s Multiple Enforcement Team (MET) arrested Nathan Wendale Waite Clark, a documented gang member, for possession of a stolen vehicle, in Highland.
According to a sheriff’s department press release, at 10:39 p.m., deputies assigned to the MET deputies were in the area of Sterling Avenue and Base Line when they observed a silver 2004 Toyota Camry that was reported stolen during a carjacking in the city of Victorville on June 4, 2019.
Deputies contacted the occupants of the vehicle. The driver of the stolen vehicle was identified as Nathan Wendale Waite Clark, 22, of Victorville, a documented gang member on active Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) with a no bail warrant for his arrest.
Waite Clark was booked into the Central Detention Center and faces charges of possession of a stolen vehicle. He is being held without bail and was scheduled to appear in Superior Court in San Bernardino on June 7, 2019, to be arraigned for the new charges and June 10, 2019, for a violation of his PRCS.
Felony PRCS probation was created as a result of California Assembly Bill 109 (AB109). As part of former Governor Jerry Brown's Realignment Plan, or Assembly Bill 109, to comply with a U.S. Supreme Court Decision requiring the state to lower its prison population; offenders with non-violent, non-sexual and non-serious convictions will serve reduced sentences in county jails and be placed on local supervision through county probation.
