    Ventura Police Department – Incident Press Release

    On  the Ventura Police Department Command Center received a call of an armed bank robbery that just occurred at the Union bank. The suspect presented a demand note to the teller and brandished a firearm. The clerk gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money and the suspect fled on foot. Patrol officers responded and began an investigation. Patrol officers were able to locate witnesses that saw the suspect flee in a vehicle that was parked nearby. Major Crimes Detectives responded and with the assistance of Patrol were able to locate video surveillance from the area and also from the Union Bank.

    On 1/30/21 at 8 PM, in the parking lot west of Target at the Pacific View Mall, Patrol officers responded to an armed robbery that just occurred. During the investigation, officers learned that the victim was loading items into her vehicle when she was approached by the suspect, who brandished a handgun and demanded her property. Upon obtaining property from the victim, the suspect fled on foot and entered a black sedan that left the area towards Main St. The suspect later used the victims ATM card at a local bank and withdrew money from the victims account. The Black vehicle used by the suspect was located later and found to be stolen.
