On June 13, 2021 at approximately 4:19 A.M., officers from the Oxnard Police Department were dispatched to an armed robbery that had just occurred at the AM/PM, located at 2850 South Rose Avenue. When officers arrived, they learned the suspect entered the store, brandished a handgun, and ordered the occupants inside onto the ground. The suspect then demanded the cashier hand over money from the register. The cashier complied and the suspect fled the business with the money.
Investigators from the Special Operations Division assumed responsibility for the investigation. During the course of the investigation, investigators were able to identify the suspect as 44-year-old Rancho Cucamonga resident Samuel Reyes. Although Reyes currently resides in Rancho Cucamonga, he has ties to the Oxnard area.
On September 28, 2021 at approximately 1:30 P.M., investigators located Reyes in the City of Rancho Cucamonga. Reyes was contacted and taken into custody without incident. A search warrant was subsequently served at Reyes’ residence.
Reyes was arrested for armed robbery and possession of methamphetamine. He was transported back to Ventura County and was later booked into the Ventura County Jail on those charges. The investigation is still ongoing. Anyone with any information about this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Carey Everhart at (805) 486-6288 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
