On 10/10/18 at approximately 10:00 a.m., the Oxnard Auto Theft Task Force (OATTF) was alerted by the family of a victim of vehicle theft, that the stolen vehicle was seen in the area of El Cajon Way and Lawrence Way. During the recovery of the vehicle, the suspect, Angela Chadwick, 29 years old, returned to the area. Chadwick was contacted and admitted to the vehicle theft. She was taken into custody for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property. Chadwick has prior arrests for theft and narcotics.
At the conclusion of the investigation, OATTF officers offered the victim a new theft deterrent sticker. The sticker warns would-be vehicle thieves that the vehicle may be under surveillance by the Oxnard Police Department. As some vehicles are vulnerable to multiple thefts, the Oxnard Police Department is targeting these vehicles for enhanced surveillance.
In addition, detectives from the OATTF, as part of an ongoing campaign to curb auto theft, are offering steering wheel locks to Oxnard residents who are owners of 1990-2000, Honda passenger vehicles. A limited amount of steering wheel locks are available to non-Honda owners. For details on obtaining a free steering wheel lock, contact Detective Enrique Alvarez at (805) 385-7664.
Residents are encouraged to be “Partners in Public Safety” and are reminded to report suspicious activity to police. Residents can report anonymously and translators are available 24/7. Anyone with information regarding criminal activity is encouraged to contact the Oxnard Police Department at (805) 385-7740 or the Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477 and www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org.
