Bianca Leal, 22, who was arrested along with Reyes last week, was charged with being an accessory.

Authorities have released few details about the crime, but sheriff's Sgt. Alan Northrup said deputies were sent to the La Playa Street address about 10 p.m. on July 9, but the suspects fled prior to their arrival.

The ensuing investigation led deputies to identify Reyes as the suspect and take him into custody about 9 a.m. last Thursday in the 46200 block of Highway 111 in Indio. A search warrant was also obtained for his home in the 30600 block of Monte Vista Way in Thousand Palms, where a major police presence was seen that morning.
