(Oxnard, CA) The Oxnard Police Department is investigating nine cases of residential burglary that have occurred to homes which are tented for the purposes of fumigation. These cases began on January 25, 2012. The most recent case occurred on February 25 on South “K” Street. In that case, 23-year-old Javier Romo was arrested however, detectives believe Romo is not the only individual committing these burglaries.
The suspect(s) are cutting a hole in the fumigation tent and removing personal property from inside the homes. The burglaries have occurred in the following neighborhoods: Hobson Park West, Marina West, Via Marina, Channel Islands, Bartolo Square North, Cabrillo. Detectives believe the burglaries are happening during evening hours.
Oxnard PD reminds residents to report suspicious individuals who are loitering or wandering around neighborhoods. Residents are also reminded to record vital information about their valuables, such as serial numbers and model numbers. Taking photographs of your personal property is another way of maintaining a record for your insurance company.
If you are going to have your home tented for fumigation, please ask the company to fax the information to the Oxnard PD so that officers can increase patrol in the area.
Anyone with information about these cases is encouraged to call Oxnard PD at (805) 385-7740 or the property crimes bureau at (805) 385-7605.
