DETAILS:
On 4/24/2013, the Oxnard Police Department distributed a crime alert to notify residents in the Windsor North and Sierra Linda neighborhoods of a notable increase in property crime in their area. Since that time, officers have continued to focus their patrol activity in those neighborhoods in an attempt to address the recent spike in activity.
 
On 5/18/2013, at approx. 0430 hrs, Officer Jonathan Martin was patrolling the area of Azalea and Mariposa Streets when he observed a subject hiding amongst parked vehicles. Officer Martin made contact with the subject, later identified as Santa Paula resident William Carroll (46 years old), and discovered that he was in possession of a large amount of stolen property including credit cards, electronics, and other personal items. Further investigation revealed that Carroll had stolen the items from various unlocked vehicles in the area. Carroll was later arrested for 666 P.C. Petty Theft w/ Priors, 496 (a) P.C. Possession of Stolen Property, 11550 (a) H&S Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance, and 3454 (c) P.C. PRO violation and booked into the Ventura County Jail.
 
William Carroll was on the Post Release Offender (PRO) program. The PRO Program released non-violent, non-sexual, and non-serious offenders from prison pursuant to Assembly Bill 109.
 
We continue to implore residents to follow a few small steps to avoid becoming a victim:

  • Please do not leave any valuable possessions in your vehicles.
  • Please make sure to lock your vehicles and remove the keys.
  • Please be certain to secure windows and doors to your homes.


If you see suspicious activity, please report it to the Oxnard Police Department at 805-385-7740, or dial 9-1-1.
