(Oxnard, CA) Today at about 9:20 a.m. Oxnard PD and Oxnard Fire responded to 621 Richmond Avenue regarding a suspicious package. The staff at Community Action of Ventura County received a package they believed to be suspicious based upon the contents.
 
Staff at the facility evacuated until the bomb squad from Ventura County Sheriff arrived. No other businesses were evacuated. A portion of Richmond Avenue was closed for a period of time.
 
VCSO bomb squad identified the contents of the package as discarded ammunition. It is not known why the package ended up at the Community Action of Ventura County office; no threats had been received. At this point in the investigation, it appears the package was inadvertently taken from the Ventura shelter and transported to the C.A.V.C. office. The bomb squad took possession of the ammunition for appropriate disposal and the scene was cleared by all fire and law enforcement personnel at 11:20 a.m. No one was injured. Richmond Avenue was re-opened to normal traffic.
