    Suspects Arrested For Purchasing A Vehicle With A Stolen Credit Card

    On July 2, 2021, an auto burglary was reported to the Los Angeles Police Department by the vehicle owner. The vehicle owner reported that several items, including identification cards, credit cards, and checks, were stolen from the vehicle.

    On the same day, the suspects, identified as Colin Moore, 38 years and Lauren Evans, 30 years, purchased a 2018 Toyota Camry from an Oxnard car dealership by utilizing the victim’s stolen identification and credit cards.

    On July 20, 2021, Oxnard Police Department Property Crime Detectives were informed of the fraudulently purchased Toyota and immediately began to follow up on the case. The detectives assisted by the Ventura County Auto Theft Task Force (VenCATT), located the vehicle occupied by Moore and Evans in the 2000 block of North Rose Avenue in Oxnard.  Both Moore and Evans were taken into custody without incident.

    The suspects were found to be in possession of personal identifying information belonging to various persons, which included the driver’s license and credit cards used to purchase the Toyota Camry.

    The suspects were charged with conspiracy, false personation, possession of a stolen vehicle, purchasing a vehicle under false pretenses and fraud.

    The Oxnard Police Department would like to offer the following tips to help prevent fraudulent use of your personal information:

    • Immediately report any theft of your personal identifying information especially if it was used to purchase items, obtain credit or open accounts;
    • Do not give your personal identifying information to anyone that you do not know or did not solicit their services;
    • Do not leave anything containing your personal identifying information in your car or any place where someone could take it;
    • Sign the back of your credit cards or write, “Demand to see proper ID” so that clerks pay attention to your credit card use; and
    • Obtain a credit report annually:  annualcreditreport.com.

    Residents are also encouraged to be “Partners in Public Safety” and reminded to report suspicious activity to police.  Residents can report anonymously and translators are available 24/7.  Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact Oxnard Police Department Detective Enrique Alvarez at (805) 385-7605 or the Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477 and www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org.
