On September 25, 2015 at approximately 7:57pm, Sheriff’s Central Deputies assigned to the City of Grand Terrace, responded to the report of an unknown type of disturbance in the 11800 Block of Honey Hill Ct. Deputies learned that the victim’s boyfriend (Charles McNeely) had taken her vehicle against her will. The victim and McNeely had been out together and became involved in an argument. The two continued to argue as McNeely drove the victim’s vehicle around Grand Terrace. At one point, McNeely pulled the vehicle to the side of the road and the victim pulled the keys from the ignition. McNeely produced a screwdriver and threatened the victim. Out of fear, the victim jumped out of the vehicle and McNeely fled the area in the vehicle. Deputies conducted an area check and located/recovered the unoccupied vehicle a short distance away. Further investigation led deputies to McNeely’s parent’s residence in the 22600 Block of Grand Terrace Rd., where he was located and taken into custody without incident. He was transported and booked at Central Detention Center for violation of PC215- Felony Carjacking and PC186.22- Criminal Gang Enhancement.
During the investigation, it was discovered that McNeely was on active PRCS release for Felony Narcotics charges out of San Bernardino County, as a result of California Assembly Bill 109. It was also determined that he is an active North Side Redlands Gang Member.
As part of 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
