Commercial Burglary Arrest

On July 25, 2023, Fillmore detectives arrested a Santa Paula resident and convicted felon for burglarizing a local Fillmore business on two separate occasions.

On July 11, 2023, employees at a local business in the 500 block of Ventura Street opened their establishment for their daily operations. The employees discovered someone had burglarized their business by forcing their way in through the drive through window. The employees discovered the suspect had stolen a small amount of currency and various perishable items. Deputies assigned to the Fillmore station responded for the initial investigation and obtained surveillance video and evidence confirming the suspect forced entry into the establishment at approximately 2:21 AM.

On July 22, 2023, employees at the same establishment arrived to work and discovered their business was again burglarized. Deputies responded and collected additional evidence. Deputies obtained additional video surveillance and found the same suspect had entered the establishment at approximately 2:45 AM and he again stole perishable items. In both burglaries the suspect took measures to conceal his identity from the business cameras.

Although the suspect took measures to conceal his identity, diligent deputies assigned to the Fillmore station reviewed the video evidence and identified a person of interest, who they identified as Manuel Alamillo. Alamillo has an extensive criminal history of theft related crimes, and he is a convicted felon.

On July 25, 2023, detectives assigned to the Fillmore Detective Bureau followed up on this information and they located Alamillo in the 1200 Block of East Harvard Boulevard in the city of Santa Paula. Detectives obtained additional evidence linking Alamillo to these crimes and arrested Alamillo.

During a search of Alamillo’s vehicle, deputies located live ammunition. Alamillo’s prior criminal history prohibits him from owning and or possessing ammunition. Alamillo was subsequently transported and booked into the Pre-Trial Detention Facility for two counts of commercial burglary and illegal possession of ammunition. Alamillo remains in custody with his bail set at $10,000.
