The owner of a replica black and red Chevrolet van from the 1980s television show “The A Team” has been arrested for alleged sexual crimes with a minor that took place in his van and now authorities are working to locate additional victims.
Edmundo Alarcon, 44, of Chino is accused of developing a relationship with a minor in November 2022 and, over the course of the relationship through July 2023, coercing the victim to engage in unlawful sexual acts, a news release from the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department stated.
Deputies from the Chino Hills Sheriff’s Station served a search warrant at the 44-year-old’s residence on Oct. 31, where the suspect was subsequently arrested and booked at the West Valley Detention Center on charges of sexual penetration of minor under duress.
