Approximately one month ago, the victims in this case had a large amount of cash stolen from their residence by an unknown suspect.  The crime prompted the victims to install a Wi-Fi enabled motion activated camera system in their home which operates with an application on the victim's cell phone.


At approximately 0800 hours, on June 6, 2016, the victims received notification that motion was detected inside their home.  Upon watching the live feed from the camera, the victims immediately recognized their neighbor, Frank Hurtado, inside their home.  The victim immediately called the Sheriff's Office.  Deputies arrived and determined an additional theft of money occurred.


After an investigation, detectives tracked down and arrested Frank Hurtado for residential burglary.  Hurtado was booked into the Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility.  Bail was set at $150,000.00.  


This crime may have gone unsolved if not for the use of modern technology which has become more affordable and easy to use.  If you have any questions, or would like crime prevention tips, please contact the Fillmore police department.
