DETAILS:

On June 28, at approximately 6:00 p.m. officers from the Oxnard Police Department Special Enforcement Unit attempted to contact a known gang member on felony probation in the 4600 block of South ‘J’ St. The suspect, Uriel Barrera, fled from officers and attempted to jump a fence into the backyard of a residence.  Barrera was quickly apprehended by the officers and was found to be in possession of a loaded handgun that was concealed in the pocket of his pants.  Barrera is a documented gang member and has prior felony charges, both of which prohibit him from possessing firearms.  Barrera was charged with several weapons related violations and was booked into the Ventura County Jail. 
 
In an effort to address the recent increase in firearms-related crimes, the Oxnard Police Department launched the Operation Safer and Stronger initiative, as well as the Firearms Strike Team (FAST) led by the Violent Crimes Unit, to proactively remove firearms from prohibited persons in the City. The objective of the initiative and FAST is to reduce gun violence in Oxnard through education, intervention, and enforcement.
