OXNARD POLICE DEPARTMENT
(OXNARD, Calif), On Friday, October 11, 2013, detectives with the Oxnard Police Department’s Family Protection Unit provided assistance to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) with an investigation into Jason Christopher Griego, 38 years of age from Port Hueneme. The detectives had previously received information about Griego indicating that he was possibly involved in lewd acts with minors.
Oxnard Police detectives, NCIS special agents, and investigators with the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office spent hundreds of hours looking into the allegations. Oxnard detectives authored a search warrant for his person, his vehicle and his classroom. Griego worked as a 7th and 8th grade math teacher at St. Anthony’s School in Oxnard.
The investigation found sufficient evidence that assisted the Denton Police Department in Texas to obtain an arrest warrant for Griego for two counts of aggravated sexual assault on a child. The crimes occurred in Texas between 2008 and 2011. Griego was arrested on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 in the City of Alameda, located in northern California.
Oxnard detectives have not yet identified any victims in Ventura County. The investigation is on-going.
Griego is currently being held in Santa Rita Jail in Alameda County and has no bail. He is in the extradition process back to Texas. Anyone with any further information or questions may contact Detective Sergeant Sharon Giles from the Oxnard Police Department at (805) 385-7620.
