    $1,000 reward

    Repeat offender, Brandon Harman, led deputies on a short foot chase in the 5000 Block of Via
    Calderon after he was seen attempting to enter locked vehicles. Harman was apprehended and
    found to be in possession of stolen property, burglary tools, and narcotics.

    Recently, the city of Camarillo has experienced an unusually high volume of nighttime thefts.
    Criminals have been using the cover darkness to steal vehicle components and property from
    inside unlocked vehicles. As a result, deputies from the Camarillo Police Station have been
    aggressively patrolling neighborhoods during the overnight hours looking for any suspicious
    vehicles or persons. This has included augmenting typical overnight patrols with specialized
    units, including the Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail and Directed Enforcement Unit.
    On 01/22/2022, at about 3:09 AM, a resident of Via Calderon received a motion alert from their
    home security system at the front of their property.

    The resident reviewed video surveillance covering their front yard and saw a male pulling on door handles of locked vehicles on the street.
    The resident promptly called 911 to report the suspicious male.
    Deputies were on scene moments after the resident reported the suspicious male and began
    their search for him. A short time later, Harman was located crouched down behind a vehicle in
    a resident’s driveway. Harman was wearing dark clothing that matched the description provided
    by the reporting resident. Upon being located, Harman stood up and ran away from the deputy.

    After a short foot chase, the deputy caught Harmon and struggled to take him into custody. With
    the assistance of additional deputies arriving on scene, Harman was secured in handcuffs.
    Harman sustained minor injuries during the incident.

    Deputies reviewed video surveillance associated with numerous residences on Via Calderon
    which captured Harman pulling on locked doors of vehicles parked on the street. Harman was
    found to be in possession of multiple items of suspected stolen property. Some of these items
    included: boxed packages, credit cards, and vehicle / mailbox keys. Deputies were able to
    confirm Harman was in possession of property that had been reported stolen in the city of Los
    Angeles. Additionally, Harman was in possession of burglary tools and narcotics.

    Harman was arrested for Prowling, Vehicle Tampering, Resisting Arrest, Identity Theft,
    Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of Burglary Tools, and Possession of Narcotics.
    Harman was booked at the Pre-Trial Detention Facility and his bail was set at $40,000.
    Harman’s next court date is scheduled for 02/08/2022.

    Shortly after booking, deputies identified Harman as the suspect of a theft from vehicle in the
    1600 Block of Daphne Street. This incident occurred on 01/21/2022, at 6:05 AM. Video
    surveillance from this incident captured a male suspect entering an unlocked vehicle parked in
    the driveway of the residence. Harman was not only identified as the suspect in the video, but he
    was also in possession of the property stolen from the vehicle during his arrest on 01/22/2022.
    Deputies returned to the jail and arrested Harman for an additional count of theft.
    During the commission of these crimes, Harman was out of custody on bail awaiting sentencing
    for similar offenses committed in Camarillo in March of 2021.

    Residents are encouraged to ensure no valuables are left in their vehicles and are encouraged to
    always lock their car doors when the vehicles are left unattended. Most thieves engaged in this
    type of criminal behavior pass over locked doors and move to those that are unlocked to prey on
    victims. Additionally, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office has established a secure database to
    log information about the location of residential surveillance systems. This will assist our
    deputies during criminal investigations similar to the one described above. If you wish to register
    your surveillance system with the Camarillo Police Department, please call (805) 388-5100 or
    email [email protected]
