Narrative:

On 11/01/2014, at about 1120 hours, Headquarters Patrol Units observed 3 juvenile males in the area of Rio School Lane and Cortez Street.  This area is located in the unincorporated community of Oxnard known as El Rio.  Headquarters Patrol Units contacted the 3 juveniles and found one of them in possession of a loaded handgun.  Patrol Units also learned all 3 juvenile males were on probation for various offenses and had gang terms as a condition of their probation.

 

Based on the circumstances and age of the suspects, the Sheriff's Gang Unit responded to the scene and assisted Headquarters Patrol with the investigation.  Over the course of the investigation, it was determined that all 3 juveniles were in fact gang members, knew of the handgun, and conspired with one another to keep the gun's discovery from law enforcement.      

 

All 3 juveniles were arrested for conspiracy to commit a crime with gang enhancements.  Two of the juveniles were cited and released to their parents and one was lodged in Juvenile Hall.

 

The Sheriff's Gang Unit is conducting follow-up investigation on the case.  Anyone with information about this incident can call Detective Jarrod Foote at (805) 654-3509.
