A man accused of organizing a raucous street takeover in San Bernardino and stealing furniture from a semi-truck is on the run from authorities, police said.
The man, identified as Victor Manuel Alanis, was captured on video with a large group who was apparently taking couches from a burglarized semi-truck and leaving in his car with stolen couches in the truck bed.

“Apparently, Victor has been sitting on the floor at his house, so he and his friends decided to pull the driver out of the truck, open up the cargo container, and score some furniture for themselves,” the San Bernardino Police Department said in a press release.
Police attempted to follow up with Alanis at his home, but he was not there, police said. A $200,000 warrant for robbery was issued for Alanis and as of Monday, May 2, he was still at-large, said Sgt. Equino Thomas, spokesman for the Police Department.
The incident took place at the intersection of 5th Street and Mt. Vernon Avenue around 11:38 p.m. on April 24. In addition to the semi-truck being burglarized, some spectators also set the roadway on fire and set off fireworks.
