A Riverside police officer has been arrested on suspicion of robbing an auto parts store in Moreno Valley on Wednesday night, authorities said.

David Reeves Jr., 28, of Moreno Valley allegedly tried to rob an Auto Zone store in the 23500 block of Sunnymead Boulevard about 9 p.m., according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Moreno Valley police detained Reeves one minute after store owners called police, authorities said.

Reeves joined the Riverside Police Department in 2001 as a cadet, said Sgt. Jaybee Brennan, a spokeswoman for the department. He was sworn in as a peace officer in 2002. He was "separated" from his employment the day after the arrest occurred, Brennan said.
