On November 13, at approximately 4:00 pm, members of the Ventura Police Department SCU unit conducted a search warrant as a result of a month-long investigation into narcotics sales. Narcotics detectives using investigative tools were able to identify the primary suspects as 32 year old Ventura resident Kylee Shane and 36 year old Ventura resident Blake Dutter.
During the subsequent investigation, detectives discovered that a large quantity of narcotics, including fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamines, and a large amount of currency.
As a result of the investigation, Blake Dutter and Kylee Shane were arrested for possession of narcotics for sales, transportation of narcotics, and conspiracy.
A search of the Ventura County Superior Court website shows both Dutter and Shane have previous arrests for narcotics sales and property related crimes. Dutter was out on bail for a narcotics sales arrest, and Shane had an arrest warrant for a narcotics sales case.
Stolen Vehicle Arrests
On November 26, at approximately 12:00 pm, the Ventura Police Department received information that a stolen vehicle was in the area of Harbor Blvd and Schooner Drive. Officers searched the area and located the vehicle near Harbor Blvd and San Jon Rd. Officers conducted a traffic stop and identified 41 year old Oxnard resident Liliana Reyes as the driver. The vehicle she was driving had been reported as stolen from the City of Oxnard earlier the same day. Reyes was arrested for unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle, as well as an existing arrest warrant for the same charge.
About an hour later, the Ventura Police Department received information that another stolen vehicle was being driven in the area of Mills Rd and Main Street in Ventura. Officers searched the area and located the vehicle, which had been reported stolen from the City of Oxnard on November 25, driving on Thompson Blvd near Five Points. When officers attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle, the driver, later identified as 24 year old Oxmard resident Jorge Peralta, failed to yield and a vehicle pursuit was initiated. Peralta drove a circuitous route through a residential neighborhood at slow speeds. During the pursuit, he drove on the wrong side of the road, drove up onto the lawn of a residence, struck a tree, and rammed into a police car. Officers successfully deployed spike strips and disabled some of the vehicle’s tires. Peralta eventually stopped the car and tried to flee from officers on foot but was taken into custody as he tried to scale a fence. Peralta was arrested for felony evading, assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle, possession of stolen property, and a parole violation.
A search of the Ventura County Superior Court website shows that Liliana Ramirez Reyes (AKA Arlene Ramirez) has two previous convictions for unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle.
A search of the Ventura County Superior Court website shows Jorge Peralta has been arrested 10 times since 2015 for various charges, including robbery, burglary, prowling, possession of a controlled substance, and giving false information to peace officer.
