On 10-2-10 at about 5:50 a.m., officers responded to a report of a burglary in progress to an automobile parked in the 1700 block of Joanne Way. When officers arrived, they found that a 17-year old male juvenile from Oxnard was being detained by several residents after the juvenile was seen jumping out of a back yard where he had attempted to hide until he was discovered by the family’s large watchdog prompting him to leave his hiding place. A second suspect, an Hispanic male in his 20’s (no further description), had fled the area prior to officers’ arrival in an older blue Honda 4-door and is still being sought.

The subsequent investigation determined that one parked vehicle had been entered and property removed and two other vehicles nearby had entry attempted. The juvenile was found to be in possession of property stolen for the vehicle that had been entered. He was lodged into Juvenile Hall for grand theft, attempted auto burglary, and possession of stolen property – all felony charges.
