Narrative:

On the early morning hours of 5/14/2017, patrol deputies responded to three separate commercial burglaries and one attempted commercial burglary in the City of Moorpark.  Each of the burglaries appeared to have been committed within a few minutes of each other.  Evidence located at the scene of one of the burglaries included surveillance video, which indicated several suspects driving a light colored Jeep Patriot SUV were responsible for the burglaries.  A few minutes later, deputies saw a vehicle matching the description of the vehicle depicted on the surveillance video driving on Los Angeles Ave.  Deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and contacted the three occupants.  During their initial contact with the occupants, deputies located a significant amount of physical evidence linking them to the burglaries.  During the investigation, detectives identified a fourth suspect outstanding who also participated in the burglaries and had stolen property from the burglaries at his residence.   

 

The City of Thousand Oaks has been recently experiencing similar burglaries so they sent detectives to assist with the investigation.  Detectives later observed the outstanding suspect leaving his home and they arrested him.   A short time later, detectives served a search warrant at the residence of the outstanding suspect and located additional evidence linking all of the suspects to the burglaries.  The three juveniles were lodged at Juvenile Hall and Dominic Thomas was booked at the East Valley Jail in lieu of a $50,000 bail.  The investigation is still ongoing to determine if the same suspects were involved in the recent Thousand Oaks burglaries.
