On August 11, 2021, the Oxnard Central Business District (CBD) officers assigned to the Neighborhood Policing Team (NPT) were working directed enforcement near the intersection of Oxnard Boulevard and Wooley Road in reference to several complaints of narcotics activity. CBD Officers conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle for a vehicle code violation. The driver, Jose Lopez, immediately yielded and exited his vehicle, confronting the officer on the reason for the traffic stop. During the investigation, Lopez was found to have an outstanding warrant for his arrest. The CBD Officers searched the vehicle and located several small bags containing Methamphetamine packaged for sale. Detectives from the Oxnard Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) responded to assist in the investigation.

DEU detectives learned from CBD Officers that Lopez was renting a room at a local motel. CBD Officers and DEU detectives responded to Lopez’ motel room and conducted a search. During a search of Lopez’ motel room, officers located further indicia on narcotics sales, narcotics packaging, and a digital scale. In total, 29 individual bags of Methamphetamine were located.

Jose Lopez was arrested for possession for sales of Methamphetamine and transportation of Methamphetamine, both felonies. Lopez was additionally charged with his outstanding Misdemeanor warrant.
