The West County Street Team of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Bureau completed an investigation into narcotics sales occurring in the city of Oxnard.

Narcotics detectives received information that Pena, a documented member of the South Side Chiques criminal street gang, was selling methamphetamine from a residence in the 300 block of Bryce Canyon Ave. Surveillance was conducted and Pena was seen making a narcotics sale.

On 11/2/2011, a signed Search Warrant was obtained for Pena and his residence. Pena was contacted as the passenger in a vehicle driven by fellow South Side Chiques gang member, Alfredo Canchola. During the subsequent search, Pena was found to be in possession of approximately 6 grams of methamphetamine and 2 grams of cocaine. Also found in the vehicle was a loaded 40 caliber handgun and a digital scale. The Search Warrant at the residence revealed approximately one half ounce of methamphetamine, a scale and several items of gang attire.

Pena and Canchola were arrested for possession for sale and transportation of a controlled substance, carrying a loaded handgun, possession of a controlled substance while armed, and committing a crime for the benefit of a criminal street gang. Pena's mother, Gloria Vasquez, was arrested for possession and under the influence of a controlled substance. All 3 were booked into the Sheriff's Main jail.
