Nature of Incident:

Burglary Investigation

Report Number:



3900 block of Cloverleaf Street, Thousand Oaks, CA

Date & Time:

Unit Responsible:

Thousand Oaks Police Department Investigations Unit

Sheriff's East County Major Crimes Unit



At about 2:50 p.m. on November 2, 2012, the Thousand Oaks Police Department received a call of a burglary in progress in the 3900 block of Cloverleaf Street in Thousand Oaks.  Upon arrival, officers discovered that several suspects entered the victim's residence while they were away and stole property.  Police officers, assisted by a Ventura County Sheriff's helicopter and two canine units, thoroughly searched the area and determined the suspects had fled prior to officers' arrival. 


Witnesses described three of the suspects as black males in their 20's to 30's.  The suspects were also believed to be associated with two vehicles.  They were described as a dark sedan and a light colored sport utility vehicle.  At this point, investigators are considering the possibility that this crime may be associated with the recent home invasion robbery that occurred on Skelton Canyon Circle on October 30, 2012.


The Thousand Oaks Police Department is requesting the public's assistance in solving these crimes.  We request that anyone with information contact investigators at (805) 494-8201.  We also request that you keep a watchful eye on your neighborhood and report any suspicious activity by calling (805) 654-9511.  Or if you believe it may be an emergency, call 911.


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 crimes.  The caller may remain anonymous.  The call is not recorded.  Call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
