Ex-Sheriff’s Deputy Convicted of False Report in Shooting Hoax


A former Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy accused of falsely claiming to have been shot outside the Lancaster sheriff’s station was convicted Tuesday of a misdemeanor charge of making a false report of a crime, but acquitted of two felony counts of insurance fraud.

Angel Raul Reinosa — who was a rookie deputy when he reported being shot in 2019 — is facing a maximum of six months in county jail.

Reinosa, now 24, reported that he was struck in the shoulder while standing in the parking lot of the Lancaster sheriff’s station in the 500 block of West Lancaster Boulevard on Aug. 21, 2019. The reported ambush triggered the establishment of a massive containment perimeter and an exhaustive, hours-long search of an adjacent four-story apartment complex.
