The City of Thousand Oaks has experienced a recent increase in thefts of property from vehicles. The unknown suspects in these cases have targeted both locked cars with items left in plain view and unlocked cars that allow easy access.
On June 1, 2012, an alert citizen called and notified the Thousand Oaks Police Department about two suspicious subjects in the area of Lynnmere Drive. Patrol officers responded to the area and located Kyle Frazee and Dustin Queen loading property into a vehicle. The initial investigation led officers to believe that the two suspects were in possession of stolen property that had been stolen from cars in the area.
This investigation continued throughout the day. Stolen property was located at two other locations and these subjects were tied to several thefts in the areas of Lynnmere Drive in the City of Thousand Oaks and Calle Yucca in the unincorporated area of Lynn Ranch.
Both Frazee and Queen were arrested for theft and possession of stolen property. They were booked at the East County Jail on $10,000.00 bail.
The Thousand Oaks Police Department would not have located these suspects without this crucial tip from the public. Citizens are encouraged to report any suspicious activity, as it may lead to the piece of the puzzle that solves the crime. Citizens are also reminded to lock their cars and avoid leaving items of value in their cars.
Ventura County Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 reward for information, which leads to the arrest and criminal complaint against the person(s) responsible for these types of crimes. The caller may remain anonymous. The call is not recorded. Call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
