OXNARD POLICE DEPARTMENT
On September 13, 2018, at about 9:30 a.m., Oxnard Police and the U.S. Secret Service conducted a search warrant on a home in the 700 block of Owens River Drive, Oxnard and found methamphetamine, opioids, counterfeit money and everything to make checks from stolen identities.
In early August, investigators obtained evidence of stolen checks and fake IDs that were a red flag for identity theft.
The information led to the Riverpark home where investigators found drugs, including methamphetamine and opioids, counterfeit checks and U.S. currency, and computer devices and printers to make fake checks and U.S. bills.
Desiree Kriss, 42, of Oxnard was arrested on felony ID theft charges and Yurii Seals, 49, of Oxnard was arrested on felony drug possession charges.
Both suspects were booked into Ventura County jail. Kriss’s bail was set at $125,000 and Seals’s bail was set at $80,000.
Detectives are still trying to determine how many victims there are, and what was stolen from them. If you think you may be a victim, please visit oxnardpd.org/fraud.
