On March 8, 2014, at 6:40 a.m., an anonymous caller reported seeing two male subjects looking into vehicles in the area of Ivywood Drive and M Street. Officers responded to the area and located Calim McClelland and Michael Ebert, who matched the description given by the anonymous caller. Both McClelland and Ebert were carrying bags that were found to contain stolen property. Both were arrested for possession of stolen property and for being under the influence of a controlled substance.
We are still attempting to locate the owners of some of the property that was found. If you were the victim of a burglary or theft from your vehicle, please contact the Oxnard Police Department to make a report.  
The Oxnard Police Department encourages residents to be partners in public safety as part of the Operation Safer and Stronger initiative.  This is an excellent example of a neighbor who saw suspicious activity, called the police, and provided the appropriate information.
We would like to encourage anyone who sees anything suspicious to call 9-1-1 and report it. You can remain anonymous. We would also like to remind residents to lock their cars and not leave valuables in their vehicles. If you would like more crime prevention information, you can visit our website at or contact Detective Crystal Walker at (805) 385-7668 or email
  DATE / TIME PREPARED:  3/8/14 1020
