Residential Burglary Arrest

On September 9, at 5:00 am, a resident on Ayala St called the Ventura Police Command Center and said that someone had just broken into their residence, and he was following the suspect as she was walking away.

Responding officers arrived on scene within four minutes and located the suspect a short distance from the residence.

The ensuing investigation revealed that the suspect, 32-year-old Ryan Flores, had made entry into the residence through an unlocked front door while the residents were asleep. The residents were awakened from the commotion inside the house and went downstairs. Flores had taken the keys to the residents’ car and was attempting to steal the car from the driveway when the resident confronted her.

Flores fled on foot and was apprehended a short while later.

Flores was booked into Ventura County Jail on charges of residential burglary, attempted vehicle theft, and possession of narcotics.

Vehicle Burglary and Possession of a Firearm Arrest

On Oct.3, the Ventura Police Department Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call of a subject, later identified as Seth Gibson (24-years-old, Ventura Resident) tampering with a vehicle. The caller confronted Gibson but left when he saw that Gibson was holding a gun in his hand. Patrol officers responded to the location and found Gibson inside the vehicle. Investigation revealed he was in possession of a semi-automatic handgun and had burglarized the vehicle.

Gibson was arrested and booked at the Ventura County Jail for vehicle burglary and several gun-related charges including possession of a concealed firearm, possession of an undetectable firearm (AKA: “ghost gun”), and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
