Oxnard PD make arrest for ID Theft & Fraud

Oxnard Police Department – Incident Press Release

After an extensive investigation with the partnership of the California State Investigators for Department of Health & Human Services and the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office, the Oxnard Police Department served a search warrant and arrest warrant on Tamara Lynn Hill aka Frazier at her home in the Vanoni Ranch apartment complex in Ventura. 

The investigation began when an Oxnard resident reported that her identity was fraudulently used by Hill to lease an apartment in Oxnard in March of 2016.  The investigation led to the discovery that Hill also used the victim’s information to fraudulently receive benefits from the State of California in excess of $10,000.  Hill was already facing several unrelated criminal charges of fraud and ID Theft in Ventura County Superior Court.  Detective Escalante, the Financial Crimes Investigator for the Oxnard Police Department, has been involved in many of those investigations.  During the search warrant service, evidence was found indicating that many additional victims of ID Theft and mail theft have not yet been confirmed. 

Detective Escalante is requesting that anybody who believes that Hill may have stolen their identity for fraudulent purpose to please contact (805) 385-7661.  In addition, evidence of illegal drug sales was discovered during the search warrant service, and Hill was later arrested for drug sales charges on April 7, 2017.  Hill is currently in custody with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.

As a former victim of mail theft and identity theft I find this encouraging that Law Enforcement has got one more of these leeches behind bars. Fortunate for me, I was observant of the goings on at my mail box and the criminal was caught. The hard part was changing my bank accounts so he could not continue his spending spree.
