    Mail Theft Suspect Arrested in Oxnard

    Oxnard Police Department – Incident Press Release

    On 12/26/19, at around 3:15 p.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for a Vehicle Code infraction. The officer noticed the driver was acting suspicious. There was   a passenger in the vehicle who was on searchable probation. During a search of the vehicle, the officer located a bag containing mail associated with various addresses. The officer contacted the owner of one package associated with an address on Deckside Drive. The owner reported he was missing a package that was due to arrive a couple days ago. He also noticed his mailbox was open and empty, a couple days ago, which he said was unusual. Through an investigation, the officer determined suspect Peter Christensen, age 22, was responsible for taking the package from the mailbox on Deckside Drive. Christensen was arrested for a misdemeanor charge of mail theft, 530.5(e) P.C.

    Some crime prevention tips to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of mail theft include 1) having a secure mailbox or mail slot (one that locks and is made of metal) 2) well-lit surroundings and 3) a visible home surveillance system to deter criminals.
