Convicted Felon Looks For Trouble; Finds It

Things have gone from bad to worse for 65 year old Steven Foster, whose bizarre conduct has landed him in jail.

On Friday, May 12th 2023 at 9:15 in the morning, deputies were called to a mobile home on Highway 74 in East Hemet.

That is where they found Foster holed up inside the mobile home he had recently been evicted from.

And Foster had a gun, and was willing to use it, firing shots at deputies and hitting a sheriffs vehicle.

The SWAT Team was called in and finally was able to convince Foster to surrender. 

Now he is facing charges of attempted murder of a peace officer, and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
