On Saturday 4-12-14, members of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, Ventura County Probation, and California State Parole conducted multiple searches of residences of parolee and probationers in the Camarillo area.  This operation was funded by a California state grant for supervising post-release and serious habitual offenders, due to state prison realignment.


Sheriff's Deputies visited forty-five Camarillo area and Somis locations late Saturday afternoon and early evening.  Of the probationers and parolees contacted, twelve were arrested for a variety of charges ranging from narcotics violations to felony arrest warrants.  Deputies also located a quantity of stolen property during the searches.


Similar operations have been conducted in Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Ojai, and the Ventura/Oxnard unincorporated areas in recent months.
