Narrative:

Two suspects were arrested on Thursday for two vehicle burglaries that occurred at a restaurant parking lot in the 1600 Block of Daily Drive in Camarillo.

 

On August 29, 2014 at 9:10 AM, Camarillo patrol deputies responded to a vehicle burglary in progress call in the parking lot of the IHop restaurant.  Arriving deputies walked to the back parking lot and observed one of the suspects taking property from one of the vehicles.  When the suspect saw the deputy, he immediately ran to an awaiting car, a 2003 silver Honda Accord.  The car, with the three subjects inside, fled the parking lot at a high rate of speed, almost causing an accident upon doing so.

 

Another responding officer observed the vehicle fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed and began to pursue the vehicle.  The vehicle fled through residential streets at approximately 70 MPH.  The deputy lost sight of the vehicle briefly as it turned onto a cul-de-sac in the 1900 block of Yolanda Street.  The deputy turned onto Yolanda Street and observed the two passengers fleeing from the vehicle and jumping over neighborhood fences.  The driver of the vehicle turned the car away from the deputy in an effort to flee the cul-de-sac.  The deputy attempted to cut-off the suspect's escape route and in doing so the suspect vehicle collided with the push bar of the patrol vehicle causing minor damage.  The suspect vehicle then fled southbound on Murray Street at a high rate of speed.

 

The deputy pursued the two passengers on foot as other arriving patrol units set-up a perimeter.  The Sheriff's K-9 Unit was requested and responded as well as a helicopter from the Air Unit.  A responding officer located one of the suspects and detained him until he was positively identified by a witness.

 

A short time later, a citizen called Sheriff's dispatch to report a person, driving a silver Honda, had cut her off and was driving at a high rate of speed in the area of Arneill and Ventura Boulevard.  Another caller advised that a subject was seen running eastbound on Ventura Boulevard toward Glenn Drive.  Deputies responded to the area and located a 2003 silver Honda Accord with collision damage consistent with the damage sustained from colliding with the deputy's patrol car.  There was also property visible in the back seat, consistent with the property taken from the two vehicle burglaries.

 

A short time later, a citizen at the Glenn Apartments notified dispatch that a subject matching the Honda driver's description was seen getting into a taxi cab.  The taxi was then observed by a deputy, getting onto southbound Highway 101.  Detectives attempted to overtake the taxi cab on the freeway without success.  Ultimately, detectives were able to contact the taxi driver and have him pull into a gas station in Canoga Park.  This gave detectives time to catch up to the vehicle and arrest the suspect.  The suspect was taken into custody without incident 

 

Castro was identified as the driver of the vehicle and was arrested and booked for two counts of vehicle burglary, and felony evading.  Ramos-Cisneros was identified as the suspect taking the property from the vehicles.  He was arrested for two counts of vehicle burglary and resisting or delaying a peace officer.
