Oxnard | Transient Suspect arrested for Stealing from Church

Oxnard Police Department Incident Press Release

Octavio Delgadillo, 36-year-old transient

On February 15, 2020, an alert employee at the Santa Clara Church noticed a suspicious subject,  whom she believed may have stolen some sacred goods from the church last week was loitering on church grounds possibly casing for an additional theft.  Her suspicions were correct.  Octavio Delgadillo was contacted by officers and found to be in possession of several stolen items.  The monetary value of the stolen items qualified Delgadillo to be arrested for two separate felonies related to the theft, however, the church was happy to recover the consecrated liturgical antiques and regalia which they consider to be priceless.

Delgadillo was arrested more than 20 times in the city of Moorpark in 2019 and very recently relocated to the Oxnard area.
