A 39-year-old fugitive was being held without bail Tuesday for his alleged involvement in multiple residential burglaries in the Hemet and San Jacinto area.

Wayne Daniel Morgan of Hemet had a felony warrant for his arrest — due to a parole violation — when deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s San Jacinto station responded to the 300 block of South Mistletoe Avenue on Sunday.

Morgan was also wanted on carjacking, armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and residential burglary charges.

He was taken into custody without incident, authorities said. They added that Morgan was allegedly found to be in possession of ammunition.

He was booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility on Sunday and was being held on $100,000 bail.

Deputies encouraged anyone with more information regarding Morgan to contact the San Jacinto Sheriff’s Station at 951-654-2702.
