A 19-year-old Moreno Valley man accused of providing alcohol to a minor at a middle school after-school program was free Wednesday morning after posting $5,000 bail.
An investigation by deputies assigned to the Moreno Valley Station’s School Resource Unit determined that the employee brought alcohol to a school in the 23900 block of Eucalyptus Avenue on Nov. 8 while he cared for children attending the THINK Together program, according to Sgt. Steve Favero of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. The address corresponds to Sunnymead Middle School.
During the after-school program, the suspect, identified as Justin Love, provided alcohol to at least one minor, Favero said.
Love was arrested in Corona about 5:20 p.m. Tuesday and booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside about an hour later on suspicion of possession of alcohol on a school campus and furnishing alcohol to a minor, Favero said.
THINK Together is a nonprofit, state-funded after-school program that utilizes school campuses to care for children in the program and is not staffed by employees from the Moreno Valley Unified School District or the City of Moreno Valley, the sheriff’s department said.
