On 9-24-2010, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department received a call of a gang fight in the 2600 Block of Eucalyptus Drive, an unincorporated area of Oxnard. Patrol deputies and gang investigators responded to the call and found a nearby residence that had been vandalized. Deputies detained several subjects in the area while they conducted their investigation.

From speaking with witnesses, investigators found that at around 3:00 PM, several gang members stood on the street and confronted a group of individuals inside of a residence. The gang members were armed with baseball bats and hammers. Several of the gang members threw large two pound ball bearings through the windows of the involved residence. A fight ensued and witnesses reported that both groups were armed with bats and or hammers. The gang members fled before deputies arrived.

A search of the area found discarded hammers and broken baseball bats. Most of the subjects detained showed minor injuries consistent with fighting. Gang investigators spoke to the detained individuals and found they were from a rival gang. Gang investigators arrested Anthony Mendez, Diego Duran, Josh Rodriguez and a 17 year-old male for assault with a deadly weapon. Rodriguez was found to be on parole and was arrested on the additional charge of violating his parole. Mendez also resisted arrest and was arrested on that additional charge. A 16 year-old male was arrested after he tried to prevent deputies from collecting evidence. He was arrested for resisting arrest. The two juveniles were lodged into Juvenile Hall. Mendez, Duran and Rodriguez were booked into the Ventura County Jail where they remain awaiting court proceedings.

On 9-25-2010, gang investigators identified one of the gang members that confronted the rival gang as Robert Cervantes. Investigators obtained a search warrant for his residence in the 3700 Block of Nyeland Ave. On 9-25-2010, Gang investigators served the search warrant and arrested Cervantes at his home. While searching the residence, gang investigators developed information that identified a 17 year-old male and Manuel Cervantes as also having participated in the gang fight. They were located at a neighbor’s house and arrested. All three were arrested for street terrorism and assault with a deadly weapon. The juvenile was lodged into Juvenile hall and the other two subjects were booked into the Ventura County Jail. They remain in custody awaiting trial.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, Detention Services Division, receives thousands of pieces of mail each month. The mail must be screened, examined and approved for delivery to inmates. This process delays the secure and orderly flow of mail into and out of the facility. Contraband has been sent into our facilities in envelopes, under stamps, between multiple pages of letters and in other innovative ways. Inmates are increasingly sophisticated and send coded information about gang intelligence, prison politics and criminal activity within innocent looking letters. In order to reduce the risks to the security of our jails and increase the efficient flow of mail to inmates, the use of postcards will be instituted.

Effective October 4, 2010, postcards will be the only form of acceptable incoming and outgoing mail for inmates in custody at any Ventura County Sheriff's Department jail facility.

The attorney-client mail protocol will remain unchanged. Postcards must comply with current U.S. mail standards. The current acceptable incoming mail standards can be located at http://www.vcsd.org/pr-inmate-information.php#5.

At the Ventura County Board of Supervisor’s Meeting held on September 21, 2010, the National Weather Service recognized the County of Ventura as an official StormReady County and presented a recognition letter along with StormReady signs to the Board of Supervisors.

The StormReady program is designed to help community leaders and emergency managers strengthen their local operations in preparation for future storms. To achieve this recognition, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services worked closely with the National Weather Service to meet rigorous criteria, which included:
- Establishing a 24-hour center for receiving National Weather Service warnings;
- Having redundant ways to receive weather forecasts and warnings;
- Creating a system that monitors local weather conditions;
- Promoting the importance of public readiness through community seminars;
- Developing a formal hazardous weather plan for training severe weather spotters.

In addition, communities that participate in activities such as StormReady receive Community Rating System (CRS) points, which may lower residents’ flood insurance premiums.

The group of individuals that worked on the County of Ventura StormReady project were also nominated and selected to receive a Certificate of Special Recognition for Partnership in Preparedness presented by the California Emergency Services Association, statewide organizations of emergency management professionals. Those individuals included:
- Cynthia Elliott, Public Information Officer, Ventura County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services
- Erin Edinger, Alert and Warning Coordinator, Ventura County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services
- Dale Carnathan, Program Administrator, Ventura County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services
- Deborah O'Malia, Disaster Preparedness Coordinator, Oxnard Fire Department

The Sheriff’s Gang Unit conducted a two-week investigation into the Hells Angels criminal street gang that resulted in the search of 15 residences and the arrest of 14 people. Among those arrested were 10 members of the Hells Angels criminal street gang. The investigation stemmed from a report of a carjacking that occurred in late August in the unincorporated area of Ventura.

During the third week of August, the Sheriff’s Gang Unit received information that members of the Hells Angels used the threat of force to steal a motorcycle. On 8-21-2010, Sheriff’s gang investigators were assisting the Santa Barbara Police Department with an event sponsored by the Hells Angels in the City of Santa Barbara. Gang investigators made a routine traffic stop on Hells Angels member Aaron McIntosh and discovered he was riding the motorcycle taken during the carjacking. Investigators arrested McIntosh for robbery and street terrorism and booked him into the Ventura County Jail. Investigators had obtained enough evidence to also arrest Hells Angels member Joe Cerezo. That same night, investigators found Cerezo in front of his house in Oak View and arrested him for robbery and street terrorism. Both McIntosh and Cerezo later bailed out of custody.

On 8-27-2010, members of the Sheriff’s Gang Unit served a search warrant at the Hells Angels clubhouse and another residence, both of which are located on Fix Way, Ventura. During the service of the search warrant, Hells Angels members James Ivans and Joseph Zeidler were arrested for being under the influence of methamphetamine. A friend of Ivans, Sonya Joshua, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and being under the influence of methamphetamine.

On 9-7-2010, the Sheriff’s Gang Unit had a search warrant for 17 members of the Hells Angels and 13 residences. They had obtained enough evidence to arrest Jacob Holder for the carjacking and to submit the case to the District Attorney’s Office. That same day, they located Aaron McIntosh near his home in Ventura. They arrested him for carjacking and booked him into the Ventura County Jail.

On 9-8-2010, gang investigators from throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties served search warrants at 13 locations. During the service of the warrants, Hells Angels member Jacob Holder was located at his home in the 50 block of Simpson, Ventura, and was arrested for carjacking.

During the service of the search warrants, Hells Angels gang members Martin Kada, Nicholas Schneider and Steven Marcus were all arrested for being under the influence of methamphetamine. Hells Angels gang member Edward Perry, who is a convicted felon, was found to be in possession of firearms and ammunition and was arrested for felon in possession of a firearm. Hells Angels gang member Cody Rutland refused to let gang investigators search him and had to be forcibly subdued. He was arrested for resisting arrest and possession of a switchblade knife. Three others were also arrested for narcotic related offenses.

On 9-9-2010, the District Attorney’s office filed grand theft auto and street terrorism charges against McIntosh and Holder. Holder remains in custody on $100,000 dollar bail and McIntosh remains in custody on $250,000 bail. All other arrestees have been released from custody on bail or their written promise to appear in court at a later date.
