    During the month of July, 2022, the Oxnard Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU), the South District Neighborhood Policing Team (NPT), and Homeless Liaison Officers (HLO’s) began an investigation regarding an increase in drug use and drug overdoses occurring in the area of Yucca Street and Saviers Road.

    During the investigation, Abel Mejia was identified as being involved in the sale of Fentanyl in the surrounding area. DEU Detectives developed enough evidence to obtain a search warrant for narcotics sales.

During a search of the vehicle, Mejia was found in possession of Fentanyl for sale. A search warrant was served at Abel Mejia’s residence and further evidence of narcotics sales was located.

    The “War on Drugs” has been a complete failure. It is a 100 year war that began with the Harrison Act of 1914. It has been escalated since 1971 when President Nixon formally announced a “War on Drugs.” The War on Drugs has not reduced the supply of drugs as it had promised. Instead, it has created a black market protected by armed gangs who murder their competitors, and a large number of severe negative unintended consequences. It’s time to de-escalate this war, it’s time to normalize adult-use cannabis sale and possession, and to decriminalize use of psilocybin and other prohibited drugs.
