On November 11th, 2013, Moorpark patrol deputies responded to a commercial burglary call at a local business on Commerce Avenue in Moorpark.  During their investigation, deputies determined a male suspect broke into a light industrial building, accessed the roof of the building, and removed two antennas and a light industrial air conditioner.  The suspect loaded the items into his black Chevrolet HHR and drove away.

Near the end of December, 2013, the victims saw a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle and obtained a partial license plate.  Detectives used this information and identified Nicholas Johnson as the suspect from the burglary.

Detectives conducted follow-up investigation and learned Johnson lived in the 5000 block of Los Angeles Avenue in Somis.  Detectives authored a search warrant for Johnson's home and executed the search warrant on January 29th, 2014.  Johnson was already in custody at the Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility on unrelated charges when the warrant was served.  While executing the search warrant, detectives contacted Nicole Jauron at the home.  They found her to be under the influence of a controlled substance and in possession of two firearms, which she was prohibited from possessing because of a previous felony conviction.  She was arrested without incident.

Detectives also located the stolen light industrial air conditioner at the home.  In addition to stolen property sought in relation to the Moorpark burglary, detectives also located stolen property from thefts and burglaries in Los Angeles County.  Investigators from the Los Angeles Police Department responded to the location and took possession of those stolen items.

As a result of the investigation, Nicholas Johnson was arrested for commercial burglary and for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.  He remains in custody at the Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility.
