Ricardo was a car thief. He lived in Silver Lake.
When Vic Mackey and the Strike Team were looking for a stolen Lincoln Navigator, the owner of a "chop shop" called Mark, led them to Ricardo. When they broke into his house, he was asleep with his girlfriend. Mackey asked him about the Lincoln Navigator and when he refused to talk, Mackey punched him in the stomach. He then confessed that he was helping a girl called Deena to get into the business, and she had stolen the Navigator.
