Oxnard: Citizen alerts police to drug deal in Shopping at the Rose parking lot

pharmacy arial,sans-serif;”>On August 5, 2015, at approximately 12:30pm , a concerned citizen noticed suspicious activity in the parking lot of Shopping at the Rose and called the Oxnard Police Department. Patrol Officers quickly responded and found two people inside the described vehicle, a red 1997 Ford pickup truck. One of the suspects, Rory Reaume, 28 year-old transient, was in the act of smoking an illegal drug. Both Reaume and the other suspect, Ainsley Van Doren, 25 year-old transient, lied about their names to avoid arrest for their outstanding arrest warrants. By using a portable fingerprint identification device, the officers were able to identify Reaume and Van Doren in the field and arrest them.

Van Doren was arrested for five outstanding arrest warrants for crimes including burglary, grand theft, and fraud. Reaume was arrested for providing a false name to the officers, possession of narcotics and paraphernalia, as well as five outstanding arrest warrants for past fraud and forgery charges.

Reaume was already a suspect in several incidents of passing counterfeit US Currency at several Oxnard retail businesses since June 2015. Patrol Officers found suspected counterfeit currency in the possession of Reaume. Oxnard Detectives and US Secret Service Agents arrived and confirmed that the money was indeed counterfeit. Inside the suspects’ vehicle additional counterfeit currency and evidence of production of counterfeit currency was found. The investigation of the counterfeit currency is ongoing, and any possible victims are encouraged to contact Detective Escalante.
