This morning at 12:50 a.m., Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Deputies received a LoJack hit in Solvang on a black, 2006 Infiniti that had been stolen out of Oxnard. Deputies stopped the Infiniti, along with a Scion that appeared to be accompanying it. They discovered stolen property inside the vehicles, including a shotgun, which appeared to be from multiple burglaries in Oxnard and Ventura.
The Oxnard Police Department Property Crimes Unit (PCU), as well as the Oxnard Auto Theft Task Force (OATTF), were notified and responded to Santa Barbara County to conduct an investigation. After sifting through the property, it was discovered that some of the property had been taken during a vehicle burglary on 06/17/18 in the 1400 block of Lombard. Detectives were also able to piece together that property located in the vehicle came from a burglary that had occurred on 06/18/18 in the 1000 block of Alturas in which the suspects entered through an unlocked side-garage door. The PCU is currently working with Ventura Police Department to contact the owners of the stolen property from their case. At the time of this writing, the investigation is still on-going and PCU detectives are working diligently to return the stolen property to its owners.
The driver of the stolen Infiniti, Rodolfo Gutierrez, 05/30/99 was arrested for vehicle theft. Both Thomas Moreno, 05/13/99 and one of the 17 year old juveniles were arrested for possession of stolen property. The final juvenile was not charged but had been listed as a “Missing Person” and he was released to the custody of his parents.
Detectives from the Property Crimes Unit are asking if anyone witnessed the events or has video evidence from the area of the 1000 block of Alturas, please contact the Oxnard Police Department.
