DATE/TIME: Tuesday, 04/1/2014 @12:30 pm

DETAILS: At about 12:30 pm on Tuesday 4/1/14, Oxnard Police Department officers made contact with a 20-year old male suspect who was attempting to enter Pacifica High School, where he was a former student.  The suspect had no legitimate reason to be on campus.

When the suspect attempted to access the campus, he was approached by campus security, who asked for his student ID.  The high school’s assigned resource officer, who was nearby, approached the subject.

During the course of the contact, the suspect was found to be in personal possession of a replica firearm (photo attached.)  The subject was arrested for a violation 626.10 of the California Penal Code (possession of a replica firearm on school grounds), and was also charged with a violation of probation.
The Oxnard Police Department maintains a partnership with the Oxnard Union High School District, and assigns officers to Oxnard’s four high schools on a full-time basis.
The Oxnard Police Department again reminds the public of the danger that replica firearms can pose.  They are a hazard to public safety when brandished or used in a threatening manner.  Criminal charges may also apply if a replica firearm is brought onto a school campus.


DATE / TIME PREPARED:  April 1, 2014, 4:20 p.m.
