On 6-23-2011, during the early morning hours, two separate armed robberies occurred in the north end of the city. The first robbery occurred in the 1500 Block of Graves Avenue and the second occurred in the 1900 block of North “C” Street. During both robberies the suspect was armed with a weapon.

During the investigation, members of Oxnard Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit (VCU) were able to identify both suspects. They were identified as Steven Rodriguez, a 21 year old Ventura resident, and a 14 year old juvenile. We are unable to release the name of the juvenile because of his age.

On 6/29/11, Rodriguez was arrested in Santa Paula at his place of employment. He was booked at the Ventura County Jail for robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. On 6/30/11, the 14 year old juvenile was contacted at his residence and arrested for robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. He was lodged at Juvenile Hall.
