Default Honest opinions of Rialto?

Planing on buying a home in Rialto, (cedar & foothill) zipcode 92376 behind the home depot, what do you think about that area ? the most important thing is near bus lines, and shopping centers, and as everyone want "low crime".

is there anything we need to be aware of.. ?

Thanks.

The crime stats section of the Rialto PD website is "under construction". Since Rialto is basically East Fontana, check out these stats compiled by the Fontucky Police Dept: Fontana Police Department - Crime Statistics (http://www.fontana.org/police/Crime_Prevention/crime_statistics.htm - broken link)

It should give you a fairly good idea of what to expect.

As far as the neighborhood you want to buy in, all I know about it is, I've been to that Home Depot many times without problems. Can't help you as far as what it's like to live there. I can tell you what it's like to live in Fontana though.

Rialto??? Blechh! It's not one of the nicer areas in the IE but it is cheaper. I used to hang out in Rialto quite a bit a few years ago. For the most part it was pretty quiet, but I do remember that a friend of a friend was murdered and the body was found behind a dumpster.

I live in Vegas now and never had the problems with crime in the IE that I've had out here. A few years ago, I got purse snatched by who must be Vegas' Dumbest Criminal. He HAD my purse.. I chased after him in my FLIP FLOPS and sweats and because I screamed for help, he dropped my purse.. I guess he thought I was just going to be okay with him taking my purse and not make any noise.. I'm not complaining though.. I got my purse back. And more recently, I got my car stolen. None of this ever happened to me (or anyone I knew) in Rialto.

There is a reason Rialto is often featured on the TV show Cops.

Rialto, Moreno Valley, & some sections of Fontana are THE MOSt horrible of the Inland Empire cities. My bf used to live in Rialto. He moved out fast when a murdered body was found in his apt complex.

I wouldn't want to drive around any of those cities at night.

Rialto is a very bad area. It's next to Fontana, Colton, San Bernardino. All bad. I live in Rancho Cucamonga, and I use to live just barely East of the 15fwy, still in Rancho, but on the border of Fontana. I rented before I saw where it was. Bad move... I had two cars stolen in 6 months. One of them was never found... the other one was found IN RIALTO, stripped to the bone... nothing left. The Officer that took the report for one of my stolen cars, called Fontana and Rialto "Felony Flats" - that's their nickname for that area!!

Rialto is ghetto.

I don't have any good advice other than everytime I watch cops they are in Rialto so that has got to say something. No offense to anyone living there.
