On 12-15-2011, Ventura County Sheriff Deputies responded to a call of a home invasion robbery in the unincorporated area of La Conchita. During the initial investigation, deputies found that at about 10:30 A.M, the victim heard someone knocking on his door. When the victim answered the door, he was confronted by three males. Two of the males were displaying knives and all three forced their way into the residence. The suspects demanded money and property from the victim then proceeded to ransack the house. Among the items taken was the victim's wallet containing credit cards. One of the suspects used packing tape to tie the victim up. All three suspects fled the residence. The victim was uninjured and able free himself before calling law enforcement.
Investigators found that shortly after the robbery, one of the victim's credit cards was used at a gas station in Ventura. The Sheriff's Gang Unit took over the investigation and was able to positively identify Henry Aguilar as the person who used the victim's credit cards. Investigators determined that Aguilar was on parole and had an outstanding felony warrant. As the investigation continued, Gang detectives also identified two other males living in an apartment with Aguilar in the 200 Blk of N Dos Caminos, Ventura. The males matched the descriptions of the suspects in the home invasion robbery.
On 12-23-2011, gang investigators stopped a female named Lisa Ramirez as she left the suspect's apartment. She was arrested for being under the influence. Shortly after her arrest, investigators served a search warrant at the suspect's apartment. During the service of the search warrant, investigators detained Henry Aguilar, Anthony Ramos, and a 15-year-old male. While searching the apartment, investigators recovered almost all of the victim's stolen property.
As a result of the investigation, gang detectives found that Ramirez conspired with Aguilar, Ramos and the 15-year-old male to rob the victim of his possessions. Ramirez provided the location and other logistical support to the three suspects who conducted the robbery.
Ramirez, Aguilar and Ramos were booked into the Ventura County Jail for charges that include kidnapping, armed robbery and burglary. The 15-year-old male was lodged into juvenile hall.
