INCIDENT: Alert Witness in High-Rise Assists Police in Arrest
DATE/TIME: 06-03-2009 at 7:20 p.m.
LOCATION: 300 block of E. Esplanade Drive, Oxnard
SUSPECT/S: Ramiro Ernesto Rosas-Rueda, 22, of Oxnard
VEHICLE: Green 2005 Kia sedan
PREPARED BY: Commander Tom Chronister


An alert witness inside of an Oxnard high-rise helped police locate a stolen vehicle suspect this evening.

At about 7:20 p.m. Oxnard police received a call of a man refusing to leave in front of Food 4 Less, 150 W. Esplanade Drive. Upon officers’ arrival, the man jumped into a car and sped away.

Officer Ramiro Holguin pursued the fleeing car. During the short pursuit, the officer determined the car, a 2005 Kia, was reported stolen out of Camarillo on May 28.

The suspect drove to the area of the parking structure adjacent to the financial towers at 300 E. Esplanade Drive, where he stopped and ran towards the College Park neighborhood.

Seeing the police activity, an anonymous witness inside of the nearby financial tower called police and provided information as to the location of the suspect who had jumped a wall into the backyard of a residence in the 200 block of St. Mary’s Drive.

An Oxnard police K-9 team located the suspect hiding in a backyard storage shed. He was taken into custody without incident.

The observations of this high-rise witness were pivotal in the successful capture of this suspect.

Ramiro Ernesto Rosas-Rueda, 22, of Oxnard was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle. He was booked into the Ventura County Jail and held on $10,000 bail.

An investigation is continuing.
