On February 8, 2019, at about 9:20 PM, officers with the Oxnard Police Department located a stolen vehicle (2015 Toyota truck) in the area of Rose Ave and Emerson Ave. The officers contacted the driver, Nuno, and arrested him without incident for the unlawful taking of a vehicle (a felony), and additional charges. The passenger, Llamas, was arrested for possessing narcotics.
Our city is currently experiencing a significant increase in stolen vehicles. To combat the problem, the Police Department is prioritizing taking a proactive comprehensive approach in the prevention, enforcement, and investigation of stolen vehicles.
A significant percentage of the stolen vehicles are preventable. The Oxnard Police Department would like to remind residents of the following tips to prevent a vehicle from being stolen:
- Never leave your car unlocked, not even for a minute.
- Never leave your keys in the car, even if you think they are really “hidden.”
- Don’t leave your car idling and unattended because it is unnecessary (it doesn’t get cold enough here), it is unsafe, illegal, and someone can steal your car.
- Wheel locks, brake pedal locks and steering wheel locks are also effective.
If anyone has any information regarding stolen vehicles please contact Ventura County Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS or www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org to submit a tip via text or email.
