Officers arrived on scene and contacted 58 year old Oxnard resident, Ricardo Bravo. Bravo was still in possession of mail when the officers detained him. Witnesses identified Bravo as the person they saw stealing the mail out of a business mailbox. The victim confirmed that Bravo is not known to them and is not supposed to be in possession of their mail. Bravo was out on bail for a prior narcotics arrest and petty theft.  He was arrested today for possession of stolen mail.

This case was made a success by the witnesses who provided the information from a safe distance and by cooperation from the victims. The Oxnard Police Department wants to remind residents to exercise caution and continue to utilize the crime prevention tips we have been sharing throughout the year. These tips are part of our ongoing Operation Safer and Stronger initiative and can be found on our Department website, Facebook page, and on Nextdoor.com.

• Pick-up mail daily
• Lock all windows and doors at night when you leave your residence or vehicle unattended.
• Close all of your windows-thieves can open vehicles and access homes through the smallest of openings.
• Don’t forget to set your residential alarm if you have one.
• To avoid obstruction, keep your landscaping trimmed.
• The best crime prevention tool ever invented is a GOOD NEIGHBOR! One of the best crime fighting teams are neighbors working in conjunction with the police department, and reporting all suspicious activity.
• Report any suspicious activity or persons to the Oxnard Police Department at (805) 385-7740.
