DETAILS: On November 5, 2008, officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to several reports of street robberies that had occurred between 9:40 PM and 10:16 PM. During those incidents, victims were walking in the area of Seventh and “E” Streets when they were contacted by the listed suspects. During those contacts the suspects demanded the victims’ cellular phones, cash and shoes. After the crimes, the suspects were seen entering a residence in the 600 block of West Seventh Street.
During their investigation a subject matching the description of the suspects stepped out of the residence and was detained by officers. Several others from inside that residence were detained and later arrested for charges ranging from conspiracy to commit robbery, intimidating witnesses and interfering with an ongoing robbery investigation.
Detectives followed up with a search warrant at that residence. Several items belonging to the victims of the earlier robberies were recovered. Detectives believe there was a party at the residence and the crimes were done by these suspects to impress the females witnessing these incidents.
All suspects were booked into the Ventura County Jail with bails ranging up to $55,000 each. An investigation is continuing.
