     During the late Fall of 2013, through the early Winter of 2014, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff's- Moorpark Station responded to several vandalism calls at the Baron Brothers Nursery, located just outside of the City of Camarillo.  Deputies learned that the production and storage facilities for the nursery, located in a canyon, approximately 1/2 mile south of the retail facilities, had been the target of multiple incidents of vandalism to several vehicles and buildings within the property. 


     Based on the ongoing vandalisms, detectives from the Moorpark Station organized a surveillance of the nursery's production facility.  The surveillance team included detectives from Moorpark Special Enforcement Bureau, Moorpark Investigations Bureau and a Sheriff's K-9 unit.


     On the afternoon of February 9th, 2014, the surveillance team covertly responded to the production facilities and arrested three suspects who were in the process of vandalizing property on the nursery at the time of their apprehension.  All three suspects were identified as juveniles from the City of Camarillo and were charged with 594(b)(1) PC / Felony vandalism, 10852 VC / Vehicle tampering and 182(a)(1) PC / Criminal conspiracy. 


    The suspects were transported to the Moorpark Station for processing and were cited and released to the custody of their parents.
