On October 30, 2019, a jury convicted Cory Fletcher (DOB 2/16/1972), of Oxnard, of 12 counts of felony burglary, including four first-degree residential burglaries, one burglary of an uninhabited house, and seven burglaries of schools throughout Ventura County.
From February 1, 2016, through March 31, 2016, Fletcher executed a series of residential and school burglaries with the aid of his 19-year-old employee and a 17-year-old relative of Fletcher’s fiancé. The school burglaries targeted tablets and computers purchased by local school districts to improve classroom learning. In one instance, Fletcher burglarized the home of a Dos Caminos Elementary School teacher, stole her keys, and burglarized the school later that night. During this two-month period, Fletcher also burglarized the home of an 89-year-old Camarillo resident three times and stole in excess of $10,000 in art and jewelry.
Sentencing is scheduled for December 2, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. in courtroom 48 of the Ventura County Superior Court. Fletcher faces up 15 years 4 months in the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation.
