Wood, Scott Christopher

Thousand Oaks



On March 27th, 2014, Camarillo Detectives arrested Scott Wood for two counts of indecent exposure.


On March 6, 2014, at 3:30 PM, a subject later identified as Scott Wood, exposed his genitalia to a female victim in the parking lot of the Carmen Plaza.


On the same date at 9:30 PM, a subject with a similar description exposed his genitalia to four female victims at the Camarillo Premium Outlets.


Camarillo detectives investigated the case and realized the suspect's descriptions were very similar in both crimes.  Detectives reviewed the Megan's Law website and located a subject, Scott Wood, who had similar features to the described suspect.  Detectives enlisted the help of a police sketch artist.  One of the victims was able to provide a very good description of the suspect for a sketch.  After the sketch was complete, detectives noticed the similarities to the sketch and the picture of Scott Wood was uncanny.  One of the victims later identified Scott Wood as the suspect who exposed himself to her.


Detectives later located, arrested and cited and released Wood for two counts of indecent exposure.  Wood is also a registered sex offender and is on probation for possession of obscene matter depicting a minor in sexual conduct. 


If anyone has information pertaining to any other unreported crimes they believe Wood is involved in, please contact Detective TJ DeSalvo @ (805) 388-5157 or Sheriff's dispatch at (805) 654-9511.
