Oxnard: Suspects arrested for stolen vehicle and break in

On May 23, 2014, at approximately 9:30pm Friday night a resident in the 900 Block of Lodgewood Way called 911 to report that a vehicle was being burglarized. The caller described the individuals who were breaking into the vehicle and also described the vehicle the individuals were driving. When officers arrived, the suspects had already fled the scene. They found that a vehicle parked on the street had been broken into.

As the officers were conducting their investigation, they learned that the vehicle used in the burglary, a grey, Honda Accord, had been stolen moments prior to the break-in.

About a half an hour later just past 10pm the stolen Honda drove by the officers as they were completing their investigation. The officers stopped the vehicle and arrested the above listed suspects after a brief foot chase. Both suspects were charged with auto theft and auto burglary and were booked into the Ventura County Jail.
