DETAILS:
On 9/13/12, the Oxnard Police Department conducted a sting operation at local shops that buy gold from the public. The operation resulted in two arrests: Francisco Lopez, 53 years old (Lopez Fine Jewelry and Perfumes) and Gonzalo Fernandez-Alvarez, 47 years old (Fernandez Jewelry). Both subjects reside in Oxnard. Lopez received a misdemeanor citation for operating a business without the proper license. Fernandez received a misdemeanor citation for failing to properly report the transaction. Both of the businesses are located inside of The Centerpoint Mall, 2600 block of Saviers Road in Oxnard.
 
The California Business and Professions Code requires a Second-Hand Dealers License for these types of shops. Business owners have to meet certain obligations when they purchase property (jewelry or other types of property) to ensure that they are not purchasing stolen goods. Reputable business owners report the items they purchase from the public to local police departments which allows law enforcement agencies to search property databases for stolen property.
 
Oxnard PD strongly encourages anyone who has knowledge of an un-licensed business to report that information to us. You can reach the Oxnard PD at (805) 385-7740 or if you wish to remain anonymous you can call Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477. You can also visit this site http://www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org/contactus.aspx to submit a tip via text or email.
 
 DATE / TIME PREPARED:  September 14, 2012 at 1200 hours.
