(OXNARD, Calif)
– On April 2, 2013, at approximately 12:30 p.m., 19 year old Oxnard resident Jorge Cervantes was arrested for his role in the gang-motivated murder of Alfredo Vargas.  Cervantes was arrested in the area of Pleasant Valley Road and Perkins Road in Oxnard after officers observed him as a passenger in a vehicle.  Cervantes was transported to the Ventura County Jail where he will be awaiting court proceedings along with the other two suspects that were arrested last week.
