The San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office issued $1 million arrest warrants for two suspects accused of defrauding numerous victims, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.
Zoe Ramirez, 19, and Ricardo Nicholas Ramkissoon, 23, both of Rancho Cucamonga, were originally arrested in May but were subsequently released the following day on their own recognizance. They were charged with stealing thousands of dollars from a victim who thought they were investing his money in stocks.
Since their release, detectives from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department were contacted by numerous additional alleged victims who stated they were also defrauded by Ramirez and Ramkissoon.
On July 15, as a result of the investigation, the D.A.'s Office issued arrest warrants for Ramirez and Ramkissoon for 15 felony counts of grand theft and three misdemeanor counts of petty theft.
Detectives and deputies from the Multi-Enforcement Team conducted an investigation to locate Ramirez and Ramkissoon. On July 24, Ramirez was found in Chino and was arrested without incident. On the same day, Ramkissoon turned himself in at the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court house and was taken into custody.
This investigation is ongoing and has revealed more evidence, indicating there may still be additional victims. Rancho detectives are releasing Ramirez and Ramkissoon’s booking photos and are asking for the public’s help in identifying anyone who may have been victimized by them.
