    Ventura | Identity Theft and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle Arrest of another Vagrant

    Ventura Police Department – Incident Press Release

    On 4/27/20, a vehicle was stolen from the 2000 block of El Jardin in Ventura. The car was left unlocked with the keys in it. Also, inside the vehicle was the victim’s wallet with credit cards. During the investigation, the Ventura Police Street Crimes Unit, along with the Ventura Police Criminal Investigative Technician, identified Wimberley from security footage using the victim’s credit cards to make several purchases at different locations in Oxnard. Wimberley was also using the credit cards to purchase items online.

    On 5/23/20, Ventura Police Street Crimes Detectives began investigating a stolen vehicle that had been stolen in the 2500 block of Poli St in the city of Ventura. This car was locked; however, a spare key was left inside the vehicle. Based on this investigation, detectives determined that Wimberley was driving the stolen vehicle and later abandoned it near the Pacific View Mall.

    On 5/26/20, while on a separate investigation, Street Crimes Detectives saw Wimberley on foot in the area of Empire Ave and Preble Ave. While they followed him in an undercover capacity, they saw Wimberley walking around residential apartment complex parking lots and looking into cars. Ventura Police Patrol assisted the SCU Detectives in detaining and arresting Wimberley.

    Wimberley was booked at the Ventura County Jail for four counts of identity theft and possession of a stolen vehicle. A review of the Ventura County Superior Court website shows Wimberley has prior convictions for grand theft, petty theft, possession of stolen property, identity theft, and possession of narcotics.

    Ventura Police Department Street Crimes Unit would like to remind everyone to keep their vehicles locked and do not leave valuables inside their cars, especially the keys to the cars.
