Ventura County Sheriff – Incident Press Release

Detectives assigned to the Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail arrested Raymond Petrie, Christian Perez, and Eileen Galaviz for being in possession of illegal drugs for the purposes of sales, being under the influence of drugs and for being in possession of other people’s identifying information.

On September 5th 2020, at about 1:30 PM, Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail detectives were in the area of a local lodging establishment in the 200 Block of Daily Drive in the city of Camarillo. While in the area, they observed a male subject identified as Raymond Petrie walking with two other subjects. Detectives were aware Petrie had three active Ventura County misdemeanor warrants for his arrest and that he is on probation with search terms.

Detectives immediately contacted Petrie and arrested him for the warrants. The two other subjects with Petrie were identified as Eileen Galaviz and Christian Perez. Both Galaviz and Perez are on active Ventura County Probation with search terms. During a search of Perez, detectives located an amount of heroin and drug paraphernalia consistent with illegal drug use. While conducting a search of Galaviz’ property, detectives located a small backpack that contained amounts of suspected fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine, prescription drugs and several hundred dollars in cash. In addition to the illegal drugs, detectives located the personal identifying information of more than 10 people, including names, dates of birth, financial account numbers, social security numbers and several blank checks. Detectives believe Galaviz possessed this information for purposes of committing identity thefts.

At the conclusion of the investigation, detectives arrested Petrie for 11550(a)-Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance and three misdemeanor warrants. Perez was arrested for HS 11350 (a) / Possession of a controlled substance and 11550(a)-Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance.

Galaviz was booked into the Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility for the listed charges with a bail set at $65,000. Petrie and Perez were issued misdemeanor citations and released with pending court dates.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid prescription drug used for pain control during surgery or chronic pain. It is also manufactured illegally and sold on the streets, often mixed with other illegal drugs such as heroin. A small amount of fentanyl, as low 2-3 milligrams, can cause death. Thousands of people die each year due to fentanyl overdoses.
