Date & Time: February 8, 2010 8:00 am
Unit Responsible: Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services

Testing of the Casitas Dam Warning System will be discontinued, effective immediately. The system was most recently tested on January 13, 2010, when only two of the eleven units reported a successful test. System performance has been degraded by age, lack of maintenance, theft and vandalism.

In 2009, following a dam failure exercise, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services implemented an emergency notification system using Reverse 911. Officials and residents can now receive a telephonic emergency message alerting of a dam failure. The City of Ventura has implemented Code Red, a similar telenotification system. Evacuation routes and other information can be viewed on the Sheriff’s OES Web Site: http://www.vcsd.org/oes .

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) installed the system in 1999 during the seismic retrofit of Casitas Dam. The system was never intended to be a permanent part of the local alert and warning system. It was intended to serve only during the construction period. Control points for the system were installed at the USBR Construction Office, Ventura City Police Dispatch, and Ventura County Sheriff’s Dispatch. Upon completion of the project, the USBR abandoned the system in place. The control points at the USBR Construction Office and Ventura Police Department were disconnected and stored. Sheriff’s OES continued to perform the quarterly tests due to public demand by residents.

In 2004, after several incidents of theft and vandalism, an estimate to repair the system was solicited. The Bureau of Reclamation, City of Ventura, Casitas Municipal Water District and the County were asked to support the repair of the system, however all declined to participate. In 2007, Sheriff’s OES began the process of requesting approval to dismantle the system. Input and agreement was sought from the District, City and County to dismantle the system. The County Disaster Council approved removal of the system at their meeting September 5, 2008. In late 2009, Sheriff’s OES received final written confirmation from the Bureau of Reclamation that the system was no longer required, or supported by them.

Sheriff’s OES will be attempting to solicit interested parties to remove the system components at no cost to the County.

Villalpando, Jimmy Assault with Firearm Oak View 27

Ventura Avenue gang member Jimmy Villalpando was sentenced to eight years in state prison today for shooting a rival gang member in 2007.

On 2-23-2007, Ojai patrol deputies responded to a report of a gunshot victim in the 300 block of N. Drown Avenue, Ojai. When they arrived, they found victim Hugo Guerra suffering from two gunshot wounds to the chest. Guerra told deputies that he was parking his car in front of his house when a car pulled up alongside him. One of the occupants yelled out a gang slogan then shot him. Guerra was transported to the Ventura County Medical Center where he eventually recovered from his wounds.

The suspect in the shooting was quickly identified as Jimmy Villalpando. He was located several hours later in the area of Oak View and arrested.

On 2-27-2007, the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office filed one count of shooting at an inhabited vehicle against Villalpando. On 2-28-2007, Villalpando was released on 90,000 dollar bail. On 3-1-2007, Villalpando failed to appear in court and a 250,000 dollar warrant was issued for his arrest.

Shortly after Villalpando failed to appear in court, the Sheriff’s Gang Unit attempted to locate him. Gang investigators tracked him to an area near El Paso, Texas and developed information that he crossed the border into Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Gang investigators believe he remained in Mexico until September of 2009.

On 9-23-2009, the Sheriff’s Department received a tip that Villalpando had returned from Mexico and was staying at his parent’s house in the 200 block of Burnham Rd., Oak View. Sheriff’s gang investigators and Ojai patrol deputies went to the house and located Villalpando hiding in the attic. He was arrested and booked into the Ventura County Jail.

On 12-22-2009, Villalpando pled guilty to one count of assault with a firearm. On 2-4-2010, he was sentenced to 8 years in state prison.

The Camarillo Police Department has received reports of a lottery scam operating in our area. Residents have been receiving letters in the mail informing them they have won a large sum of money in an international lottery program. A check is usually sent along with the letter. The letter indicates the check was sent to assist in paying the taxes or "clearance fees" that must be paid before they can receive the grand prize. The recipient is instructed to deposit the check and then wire the money (usually outside the United States) to cover the taxes or "clearance fees."

Letters such as those described above are SCAMS! People fall victim to this type of scam everyday because they are led to believe they have won a large sum of money. Here's the hitch. No such lottery exists and no winnings are ever sent. The scam works because the check that is sent along with the letter is deposited to the victim's account and then the victim wire transfers the money to a specified location. Once the money is wired and picked up, there is no way to get it back. It isn't until a few days afterward that the deposited check is identified as fraudulent. There are several variations to this type of scam, including notifications made by telephone. The Camarillo Police Departments advises residents:
• if you have doubts about a caller - hang-up
• never send any money in order to receive a prize
• never give out private financial information
• if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

The victim reported that she was driving her vehicle northbound on the 101 freeway. As she was exiting the freeway at the Carmen Drive off ramp, an unknown male pulled up next to her in his vehicle. The male subject got the victim’s attention and indicated that she had a flat tire and offered to help her.

The victim drove to the parking lot of Carmen Plaza and the male subject followed her there. The victim got out of her vehicle to identify the flat tire. She realized there was no flat tire and quickly got back into her vehicle. As she got into her vehicle, the male subject got into her vehicle and sat in the passenger’s side seat. At this time the male subject reached over to the victim and touched her leg with his hand. The victim told the male subject to get out of her vehicle and that she was calling a friend. The male subject immediately got out of her vehicle. He quickly got into his vehicle and left the area. Responding deputies checked the area but were unable to locate the subject.

The male subject was described as a white male, approximately 50 years old. His vehicle was described as a dark colored Chevrolet four-door sedan. The vehicle did not have a front license plate.

The victim was not injured during this incident. The Camarillo Police Department is asking any witnesses to contact either Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477) or the Camarillo Police Department at 805 388-5100.

Unit Responsible: Headquarters Station

On 1-3-10, a Ventura County deputy sheriff recovered a Sony digital camera that is believed to be stolen; however, the owners have not been identified. The camera contains numerous photos of a male and female subject on a Royal Caribbean Cruise. Based on the photos it was determined that the couple sailed on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship, the Majesty of the Seas, out of Miami, possibly setting sail on Sept. 28, 2009. Royal Caribbean Cruise line has assisted with the investigation, but has not been able to identify the camera owner with the limited information available.

The camera was located in a vehicle where other stolen property was also discovered. The investigators on the case believe that the camera was most likely stolen during a vehicle burglary sometime between October and December 2009, while the owner was visiting the Nyeland Acres area of Oxnard.

Investigators would like to return the stolen property to the rightful owners so they can have the memories of their cruise and to determine how the property came into possession of the person who had it on 1-3-10. Anyone having information as to the identity of the subjects on the cruise is asked to contact the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department at (805) 662-6770.
