On 7/14/11, Oxnard Police Officers received a report of an armed robbery that occurred in the 1000 block of Piñata Street. The victim told police that he had been in a dispute with the suspect over the sale of a car. The suspect, later identified as Luis Hernandez, confronted the victim and demanded money for repairs that he had to make to the vehicle that he had bought earlier in the month. At some point Hernandez removed a handgun from his pocket and threatened the victim while demanding money from the victim. The victim gave Hernandez the money he had requested. Investigators from the Oxnard Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit (VCU) identified the suspect and obtained a search warrant for a residence in the 2100 block of E. Daily Drive, in Camarillo.

On 7/29/11 at approximately 10:30 am, Hernandez was arrested without incident in Ventura and a search was conducted at his residence in Camarillo. During an interview with detectives, Hernandez admitted that he threatened the victim and demanded money from him. Luis Hernandez was booked into the Ventura County Jail for Robbery.
