Investigators with the Ventura County Fentanyl and Overdose Crimes Units (VCFOCUS) concluded an investigation of Jessica Valadez of Oxnard for selling counterfeit prescription pills containing Fentanyl to Ventura County residents.

During the month of May 2023, investigators assigned to the Ventura County Fentanyl Overdose and Crimes Units (VCFOCUS), received information that Jessica Valadez was selling counterfeit prescription pills that contained the deadly drug Fentanyl. The pills appeared to be legitimate Oxycodone pills, light blue in color and stamped with “M 30” but were actually fraudulent pills containing Fentanyl.

During the investigation, investigators obtained a search warrant for Valadez’ residence and vehicle. On May 26, 2023, at approximately 8:10 PM, VCFOCUS investigators located Valadez driving into the parking lot located in the 2000 block of North Rose Avenue. Valadez was detained and the search warrant was served. As a result, investigators seized 309 fraudulent Oxycodone pills. The street level price for one of these pills is approximately ten to fifteen dollars per pill. The approximately value of the pills possessed by Valadez is $3,090.00

Jessica Valadez was arrested and booked into the Ventura County Jail for violating California Health and Safety Code section 11351(a) / possession of a controlled substance for sale, and 11352(a) / transportation of a controlled substance.

According to the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, fraudulent prescription Oxycodone pills, such as the ones seized from Valadez, typically contain .02 to 5.1 milligrams of fentanyl per tablet and a potentially lethal dose of Fentanyl is 2 milligrams.

The Ventura County Fentanyl Overdose and Crimes Units (VCFOCUS) is a task force made up of Ventura County regional law enforcement agencies. The primary mission of this partnership is to combat fentanyl related crimes and opioid overdoses by targeting the supply chain of individuals and criminal organizations responsible for the sales of these drugs into Ventura County. In addition, the task force works to identify new trends of abuse among the younger population and educate the community at large on the lethal danger of this epidemic.

VCFOCUS has partnered with Ventura County Behavioral Health as an active member of the County Opioid Abuse Suppression Taskforce (COAST) in a campaign to reduce overdoses and educate the public about the dangers of opioids and other drugs. Comprehensive information can be found at www.VenturaCountyResponds.org.

The public may contact investigators from the VCFOCUS at (805) 383-8700 or VCFOCUS@ventura.org with additional information about this case, or any other information related to narcotics.

Vintage Pleasures opened its doors for business on July 3rd, 2003. The building was built in 1907 and was fully retrofitted after the Northridge Earthquake in 1994.

Owner Norma Amaro’s son, Marine Cpl. Marcos Amaro, was the first customer. He purchased a ‘Homie’ figure for $1.00, then signed and dated the dollar; it is posted on the Patriotic Wall, which is much appreciated by all, especially Veterans. Visit the shop at 326 Central Avenue and see for yourself!

Vintage Pleasures started with seven vendors, and now has 24 unique vendors including a New Old Stock Disney space that is continually restocked, a local artist ‘Iron Arts’ space that offers personalized metal arts, and they offer indoor and outdoor furniture pieces, and so much more.

They also sell and raffle handcrafted fire pits by an artist whose cancer is in remission. On average, one winner is selected every month.

To celebrate their 20th year, they are having raffles each week in June for different arts and gifts certificates. Norma can offer more information on the raffles, drop by for a friendly chat!
Vintage Pleasures has been part of many Hollywood films and commercials; a Christmas Duracell Battery commercial, NCSI with Mark Harmon and a Superbowl Dodge commercial, just to name a few. Marcus Castro, Norma’s brother, is the store’s security during the filmings.

Maureen McCormick of the original Brady Bunch has been, and still is, a regular visitor.
The next time you’re taking a stroll down Central Avenue, stop in and wish Norma a Happy Anniversary!

The June “Yard of the Month” award was presented by Civic Pride Volunteers, to Rafael & Imelda Magana of 40 Coronado St. in El Dorado Mobile Estates.
Imelda said she grew up in Rancho Sespe where she was one of 11 children; Rafael was one of 16! They moved to this home in 2016.
Rafael & Imelda share the gardening duties of planting, weeding & watering. Imelda told us every eight days she is out watering & working in the yard. Even though her husband thinks they have too many plants, she said the flowers & yard keep her healthy & happy. I agreed wholeheartedly!
They have been able to grow an amazing variety of flowers, herbs & fruit trees in their little front, side & back yard. We told Imelda that she definitely has a “Green Thumb” as she & daughter Kelli showed us several pomegranate trees planted from one arial (seed), apple & peach trees, strawberry guava trees, cilantro, citroen or lemon verbena used to make a tea for digestion. Also planted were lemon grass, feverfew plants, zucchini, red chili peppers, calla lilies, stunning hollyhocks that reached the roof, amaryllis, impatiens & geraniums surrounding beautiful roses in red, coral & yellow.
You would be inspired to see this yard. They were so pleased to receive the $50 gift card from Otto & Sons Nursery! Civic Pride volunteers appreciate their support for this project over all the years.

“A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse of course, that is, of course, unless” it’s Taurie Banks. Taurie is a longtime resident of Fillmore and a graduate of Fillmore High School. She was a member of the 4-H Pony Club, Future Farmers of America, and is a longtime equestrian. Taurie has been involved with horses since 1976. She is the owner and operator of Kings Corner Training Stables in Moorpark.

As a rider and trainer, she trained two horses that were selected out of six hundred horses for the 1984 Olympic Modern Pentathlon, which is an Olympic sport that includes equestrian show jumping. Her many accomplishments also include being a two-time World Champion at dressage and western dressage; three-time Reserve World Champion dressage, western dressage, and jumpers; and was accepted by Southern California Equestrian Sports for the development of international riders, to name only a few of her accomplishments as a rider and trainer. As an instructor, Taurie trained a junior rider who won the CCC California State Champion for Jumpers; trained winning riders for the USPC, ISHA and IEL (dressage, eventing, jumpers, and hunters); and trained multiple riders for the USPC National Championships and Championships West (dressage, eventing, show jumping and tetrathalon).

Horses in America have been an important way of life since the nation’s founding in 1776. When Christopher Columbus sailed to the Americas on his second voyage in 1493, he brought Spanish horses to the Virgin Islands. In 1519, Hernán Cortés introduced the horses to the continental mainland. The horses became integral to rural and urban life up to the 20th century when they were replaced with mechanization in industrial, economic, and transportation. Although horses are still used for special tasks, they are now primarily used for recreation and entertainment. An interesting fact stated in an article in Psychology Today (December 6, 2020), “In both the USA and Great Britain, over 90% of horse owners are women. Three out of four students enrolled in riding schools in Europe are women. The first woman to be a horse veterinarian was in 1957 and now, four out of five equine veterinary graduates are women.”

Although Taurie is immersed in all things relating to horses, she finds the time to give back to the community. Following in the footsteps of her mother, Susan Banks, who was one of the founding members and president of the Fillmore Women’s Service Club, Taurie has served as president and vice president of the club. The club raises funds that are distributed back to the community to families in need, graduating seniors, women returning to education, school activities, museums, libraries, and many other community groups. Taurie organizes and assists in fundraising activities; speaks at Fillmore High School and Sierra High School on scholarships; and developed the Junior Women’s Service Club to provide mentors to young women.

If you see Taurie around town and want to talk horses, just remember, “A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse of course, that is, of course, unless” it’s Taurie Banks.

The AT&T Corp. antenna support structure along the bike path just north of the 500 block of Santa Clara St. is taking shape. In 2020, the Applicant, Eukon Group, on behalf of AT&T Corporation, requested a permit to construct and to operate an AT&T wireless/cell tower facility. The facility consists of a 65-foot -inch antenna support structure with the architectural treatment of a hip roof that extends 2.9 feet above 65’, ground mounted equipment, and back-up generator surround by a 6’ in height block wall. It is located at 563 Santa Clara St. adjacent to the railroad right of way. The antenna support tower structure contains the antenna panels and radio units. A concrete slab on grade provides support for the ground mounted equipment. The tower will be camouflaged when completed, according to City Planning Director Kevin McSweeney.

Ventura County, California. – During May’s Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office reminds drivers to always look twice for motorcycles. Safe riding and driving practices, and a shared responsibility from all road users, will help everyone get to their destination safely.

“Motorcycles may be difficult to spot, so be extra careful before changing lanes,” Captain Darin Hendren said. “Motorcycle riders do not have the same protections drivers and passengers do. Please share the road with motorcycles and drive safe.”

To help protect you and your family, keep the following tips in mind while driving or riding:

Drivers
Always check mirrors and blind spots before changing lanes.
Do not follow a motorcycle too closely. Always keep a safe distance.
If you see a motorcycle with a signal on, be careful. Be sure that the rider is turning before moving ahead.
Motorcyclists
Always wear a U.S. DOT-compliant helmet with eye protection.
Wear leather or other sturdy clothing such as a jacket, pants, boots with nonskid soles and gloves. Add reflective strips or decals to your clothing and motorcycle to make it easier for other drivers to see you.
Ride defensively. Don’t assume a driver can see you. Avoid riding in a driver’s blind spot.
Always keep your lights on, even during the day.

Lastly, both drivers and riders should never drive/ride distracted or under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

CAMARILLO, Calif. – May is Bike Month, and the Ventura County Transportation Commission
(VCTC) is encouraging residents to ride to work, for health and simply for fun.

VCTC’s new guide, “Biking Ventura County: Routes & Tips for Beginners & Families” makes it
easy to find a place to ride, with helpful information for those new to biking and for younger
riders. The guide features shared-use paths and separated bike lanes across Ventura County,
plus provides guidance on safety, e-bikes and tips for taking bicycles aboard public transit.
During Bike Month, residents are encouraged to leave their vehicles at home and instead use
bicycles to travel to their destinations. Trips might include running errands, traveling to
appointments or just getting outdoors.

In addition, commuters can consider swapping their car for a bike during Bike to Work Week
(May 15-21) and Bike to Work Day (May 19).

VCTC invites people to pledge to bike during the month of May. Those who make the pledge at
goventura.org/pledge will be entered for a chance to win one of six $250 Amazon gift cards.
Participants must be 18 or older, and the pledge must be made by May 31.
In addition to the “Beginners & Families” guide, VCTC offers the “Go Ventura Bikeways Map,”
which outlines routes across Ventura County for both beginner and experienced cyclists. The
regional bike map highlights Class 1 paths, which are separated from cars; Class 2, which are
shared-street painted bike lanes; and Class 3, which are on-street bike routes designated by
signs.

Both the guide and the map are available on VCTC’s website at goventura.org/gettingaround/bike. Printed copies are available at bike shops across the county or by sending an
email to bike@goventura.org.
“Riding a bike should be a transportation option that is available to everyone in our community,
regardless of their level of experience. We’re excited to offer the ‘Beginners & Families’ guide,
and we hope it will encourage more people to try biking,” said VCTC Executive Director Martin
Erickson.

For longer trips, commuters can combine a bike ride with a bus or train trip. Most Southern
California transit operators offer on-board storage compartments or bike racks. VCTC Intercity
service allows electric bikes (e-bikes) if they do not have wet-cell batteries.
“Commuting by bike instead of driving, or combining a bicycle trip with a bus ride, means fewer
vehicles are on the road. That in turn will reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and will help
California achieve its climate goals,” Erickson said.
For more information about transportation and biking, follow VCTC (@GoVCTC) on Facebook,
Twitter, or Instagram, or visit goventura.org.

On May 12, 2023, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Upper Ojai Search and Rescue (SAR) Team located and came to the aid of 10 missing hikers near the “Last Chance” area of the Santa Paula Canyon.

On the above date, at approximately 8:00 P.M., Ventura County Sheriff’s Dispatch received a text message from a group of ten hikers who were unable to find their way back from the Santa Paula Canyon. These hikers were able to contact Ventura County Sheriff’s Dispatch through the Apple Emergency SOS feature and provided valuable information such as a possible location and if immediate medical aid was needed. Additionally, guardians for the 10 overdue hikers contacted Ventura County Sheriff’s Deputies near the trailhead to report the subjects as missing and possibly in need of assistance.

At approximately 8:30 P.M., the Upper Ojai Search and Rescue (SAR) Team was activated and immediately responded to the Santa Paula Canyon Trailhead. A total of 13 SAR members responded to locate the missing hikers.

SAR team members hiked approximately 4 miles into the Santa Paula Canyon to locate the 10 missing hikers. SAR team members were faced with low visibility, multiple stream crossings and trails that had been previously damaged from the heavy rains.

At approximately 11:15 P.M., SAR team members located the 10 missing hikers. Most of the hikers were not prepared for the hike and were provided with food, drinking water and lighting equipment as they were led out to the Santa Paula Canyon Trailhead.

At approximately 2:40 A.M., SAR team members returned to the Santa Paula Canyon Trailhead with the 10 missing hikers. The hikers were reunited with their guardians and fortunately did not require any medical aid.

The Upper Ojai Search and Rescue (SAR) Team consists of approximately 28 volunteers skilled in search and rescue operations in mountain, canyon and urban settings. The team volunteers on average 4000 hours per year on searches, rescues, training and public events.
