Narrative:

Ventura County Sheriff's Major Crimes Investigators have dedicated numerous resources and man-hours to the investigation of several armed robberies that occurred in Camarillo on March 12, 2013. Early on in the investigation, Austin Jacquemin was identified as the suspect responsible for committing the robberies and attempted robberies in the general area near the 2400 block of Las Posas Road. During the commission of these crimes, Jacquemin was armed with a replica handgun and attempted to conceal his identity by wearing a ski mask. Jacquemein was arrested and booked into the Ventura County Jail where remains in custody on $505,000 bail.

 

In addition to the crimes mentioned above, the Taco Bell restaurant, located at 95 Daily Drive in Camarillo, was also robbed on the night of March 12, 2013. Although there were similarities in each robbery, the Taco Bell investigation required further follow up to identify the suspect. This follow-up eventually resulted in the recovery of additional evidence, linking Jacquemin to that crime as well. Therefore, an additional charge of armed robbery has been filed against Jacquemin. The investigation is still on going as more leads are being pursued regarding information about additional suspects who aided Jacquemin before, during, and after the commission of the Taco Bell robbery. 

 

Anyone with information regarding any of these crimes is encouraged to contact Detective Sergeant John Gleason at (805) 384-4727. If you wish to remain anonymous, Ventura County Crime Stoppers will pay up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and criminal complaint against persons responsible for criminal activity. The caller may remain anonymous and the call is not recorded. The number for Crime Stoppers is 800-222-TIPS (8477).
