(Oxnard, CA) On July 5, 2012 at about 1 a.m. Oxnard PD officers responded to a burglary alarm at the Channel Islands Dairy located at 1420 W. Channel Islands Boulevard. As the first officer arrived he saw a white, 1996 Dodge Caravan leaving the rear of the building. The officer stopped the vehicle, which was driven by Omar Uribe Barrera 3/2/76.  Barrera was sweating profusely and didn’t have a good reason as to why he was in the area.
When additional officers arrived, they confirmed that the store had been broken into, with the suspect gaining access to the business through a hole that had been made in the roof. Officers reviewed surveillance video from the store and identified Barrera as the suspect who broke into the business. Cash from the register was the loss in this case.
Barrera is also charged with two additional rooftop burglaries where he made holes in the roofs of the businesses to gain access and stole money from the cash registers. These two additional incidents were also captured on surveillance video. The other two businesses were Fierro’s Meat Market at 1355 S. “C” Street (occurred on 6/9/12 at 10:50 p.m.) and Cindy’s Minimart at 156 E. Channel Islands Boulevard (occurred on 3/28/12 at 10 p.m.).
Anyone with information about these cases is encouraged to call Oxnard PD at (805) 385-7740 or Detective Nathan Martin at (805) 385-7755. If you wish to remain anonymous you may call Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477. You can also visit this site to submit a tip via text or email.
