Two men arrested at Pechanga Casino put up struggle, hurt officer

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Deputies investigating a theft report at the Pechanga Casino arrested two San Diego County men, but not without a struggle that injured one of the officers, the sheriff's department said Sunday.

The deputies went to the casino southeast of Temecula shortly after 6 a.m. Saturday when security officers called in that two suspects from a Friday night theft had returned, according to sheriff's Sgt. Will Edwards.

The suspects were identified as Thomas Paul Allen, 43, of Oceanside, and David Alan Roll, 49, of Fallbrook.

"As deputies were detaining Roll, he began to pull away from the deputies in an attempt to flee," Edwards said. "Roll was ultimately taken into custody after a brief struggle. As Roll was taken into custody, deputies located a loaded firearm that fell from his waistband."

Edwards said that one of the deputies involved in the struggle was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries.

A preliminary investigation revealed that Roll had an outstanding felony warrant from San Diego for a weapons and explosive charge and is a convicted felon, Edwards said.

Roll was booked into the Southwest Detention Center for his warrant, as well as for suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a loaded or concealed firearm and for resisting arrest. Roll was being held with no bail.

Allen was booked for suspicion of carrying a loaded firearm in public and was released on bond for $5,000 bail, pending a Dec. 9 court date.

Edwards said that the theft investigation was ongoing.
