On the morning of September 3, 2022, deputies from the Fillmore Police Department responded to investigate a burglary to a business located in the 500 Block of Ventura Street in the city of Fillmore.

Upon arrival, the investigating deputies determined that an unknown suspect(s) forced entry through the front door of the business while the business was closed and stole three acoustic guitars from inside the store. The deputies canvassed the area and located surveillance cameras that captured the commission of the crime, on the evening of September 2nd. From the surveillance video, deputies identified 34-year-old, Fillmore resident Guadalupe Lopez as the burglary suspect.

A search for Lopez ensued and he was located and arrested in the 500 Block of Santa Clara Street in Fillmore on September 3rd. One of the stolen guitars was located nearby and returned to the business owner. Deputies collected additional evidence which linked Lopez to commission of the burglary. The other two stolen acoustic guitars are outstanding, which are pictured in the attached photograph.

On September 7th, Lopez was arraigned in Ventura County Superior Court and he was held to answer on the burglary charge. Lopez is currently in custody with a bail set at $10,000.
