Arrest of Suspect Rauda


#LASD Parolee Charged with Murder and other crimes, Malibu State Park

Monday, January 7, 2019, 42-year-old Anthony Rauda, with no current known residency, was charged with multiple crimes, including: one count of Murder, ten counts of Attempted Murder and five counts of second-degree burglary, by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.  The criminal complaint filed by the District Attorney’s Office, stems from the October 10th, 2018 arrest of Rauda in the wooded area of the Malibu Creek State Park for a series of burglaries, within the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station jurisdiction.
 
After Rauda’s arrest Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Major Crimes Bureau, Homicide Bureau, Lost Hills Station, and Deputy District Attorneys from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, collaborated closely to examine leads, tying Rauda to past reports of shooting incidents, assaults, and the tragic Homicide of Mr. Tristan Beaudette, on June 22, 2018.
 
After a lengthy, extensive investigation, evidence was developed and gathered, incriminating Rauda as being responsible for a series of armed burglaries, multiple shooting incidents, and the murder of Tristan Beaudette.  A concentrated effort by Detectives to unearth the past activities of Rauda correlating with this investigation, has revealed that he apparently acted alone during this identified crime spree, stretching from November 2016 to October 2018.  No similar crimes have been reported in the area since the October 2018, arrest of Rauda.
 
The results of this collaborative effort, illustrate the value and strength of coordinated communication, as well as the cooperation among the multiple agencies and stakeholders that helped end this crime spree.
