Detectives arrest a sex offender for registration and probation violations

DATE/TIME: October 20, 2017

INCIDENT: PC 290 – Fail to Register; Sex Offender Requirements
PC 1203.2 – Probation Violation

LOCATION: 11050 Bryant Street; City of Yucaipa

SUSPECT: Christopher Ryan Sanchez, 20 years old, resident of Yucaipa


On February 22, 2017, Christopher Sanchez engaged in lewd sexual acts with a 16-year-old victim, who was home alone. Sanchez was arrested and later convicted of PC 261.5 – Unlawful Sexual Acts with a minor. Sanchez was placed on formal Felony Probation and required to register as a Sex Offender.

On October 20, 2017, Yucaipa Police and a San Bernardino County Probation Officer responded to Sanchez’ residence to conduct a compliance check of his residence. During the compliance check, Sanchez was found to be in violation of the terms of his probation. Sanchez was also found to be in violation of his Sex Offender registration requirements.

Sanchez was arrested for the above charges and was booked into the Central Detention Center where he is being held without bail.

During the investigation, it was found that Sanchez is still communicating with young females through social media sites. The females appear to be under the age of 18 years old. Investigators believe Sanchez is still engaging in sexual acts with minors. Detectives are releasing a photo of Sanchez, as they believe there may be additional minor victims who have engaged in sexual acts with Sanchez. Detectives are encouraging any additional victims to come forward and contact Yucaipa Police Detectives.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Yucaipa Police Department Detective Division. If you choose to remain anonymous, call WeTip at 1-800-78-CRIME.
