Stolen Vehicle and Burglary Arrest

On November 13, at approximately 11:45 am, Ventura Police Patrol Task Force Officers and Detectives from the Ventura County Auto Theft Taskforce observed a reported stolen vehicle from Santa Barbara in the 3000 block of E. Main Street in Ventura. The Officers were able to catch up to the vehicle as it was stopped for a traffic light on Telegraph Road and Mills Road. The driver of the stolen vehicle, 32-year-old Oxnard resident Jose Ramos, fled on foot from the vehicle northbound on Mills Rd. and eventually into the neighborhood west of Mills Rd. Officers were then hailed by a resident in the 50 Block of San Marino Ave. who saw Ramos enter their unlocked residential garage.

Officers immediately set up a perimeter at the residence and made verbal contact with Ramos who refused to exit the garage. Officers were negotiating with Ramos while evacuating the residence. After negotiations, Ramos walked out of the garage and he was taken into custody without further incident. During a search of Ramos officers located stolen property from the victim’s garage.

Ramos was transported to Ventura County Medical Center for a minor head injury he sustained while fleeing from the stolen vehicle. No other injuries were reported. Ramos was then booked at Ventura County Jail for unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle, burglary, and two misdemeanor warrants.

Residential Burglary Arrest

On November 14, at approximately 10:30 am, a resident from the 600 block of County Square Dr. was informed of a subject who had gained entry into their home. The resident was not home at the time. Officers arrived on scene and established a perimeter around the residence. The suspect, 30-year-old Fillmore resident Oscar Ramos, walked out but retreated back in when he saw officers. Ramos refused to exit the home while officers negotiated with him. About 20 minutes later, Ramos exited, and he was taken into custody for burglary and resisting, delaying, or obstructing police officers. He was eventually booked into the Ventura County Jail.

Ramos had been released from the Ventura County Jail the morning of November 14 before committing the burglary. A search of the Ventura County Superior Court website shows Ramos has prior arrests for being under the influence of a controlled substance, elder abuse, battery, vandalism, carrying a dirk or dagger, public intoxication, disturbing the peace by fighting, violation of a court order, criminal threats, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting an executive officer.

Brandishing and Negligent Discharge of a Firearm Arrest

On November 14, at approximately 11:30 pm, an employee of a business in the 6500 block of Telephone Rd. called Ventura Police dispatch to report a brandishing of a firearm. The caller also reported hearing a gunshot. Multiple officers responded to the area however the suspect had fled the scene prior to the arrival of officers. There were no injuries reported during this incident.

An investigation identified the suspect as 26-year-old Oxnard resident Alonzo Alcantar and determined Alcantar had brandished a firearm to employees of the business after an altercation. Alcantar was also suspected of firing a shot in the parking lot while patrons of the business were present.

On November 15, Street Crimes Unit detectives located Alcantar and he was arrested for Brandishing a Firearm and Negligent Discharge of a Firearm. Alcantar was also found to be in possession of a loaded firearm. Alcantar was booked at the Ventura County Jail.
