On 10/05/17, Camarillo Detectives arrested Andrew Littlejohn for the burglary of a Camarillo Church that was reported on 09/13/17.

 

On 09/13/17, Camarillo patrol deputies responded to a report of a burglary at the Camarillo Church of the Nazarene, in the 2000 block of Antonio Avenue.   Surveillance video at the scene showed two unknown males enter the church and steal property including several musical instruments. 

 

Camarillo Detectives reviewed the video surveillance footage and were able to identify (S) Andrew Michael Littlejohn as one of the two subjects involved. During the investigation that followed, detectives learned the stolen property was being stored at a residence in the City of Camarillo.

 

On 10-3-17, detectives from the Camarillo Police Department's Investigations Unit and Special Enforcement Detail executed a search warrant in the 1000 Block of Jay Ave, in the City of Camarillo. Detectives recovered several items of property stolen from the church. In addition to the items recovered from the church burglary, detectives recovered two firearms and a substantial amount of illegal narcotics, at the residence.

 

On 10-5-17, Camarillo Detectives contacted (S) Littlejohn at the Ventura County Sheriff's Todd Road Jail, where he was in custody, for unrelated charges. Littlejohn was arrested for PC 459- Burglary. (S) Littlejohn's bail was set at $100,000.

 

The second male observed in the video surveillance footage is outstanding and the investigation is on-going.  Anyone who has information that might assist detectives in this case is asked to call the Camarillo Police Department's News story hotline at (805) 388-5151, or they may call Ventura County Crime Stoppers (info below).
