A Ventura County woman was recently arrested in connection with at least five separate incidents of burglary in Ojai, according to a report by Citizensjournal.us. For over a month, residents in Oak View reported that small household items, such as vacuums, child safety seats, and power saws, were disappearing from their yards, garages, and porches.
One victim happened to catch the woman in the act as she attempted to take items from the victim's garage. The woman fled, but the victim got the woman's license plate number and reported the incident to the police.
Using the license plate number, police were able to track down the suspected burglar and even identified the woman's Facebook. The police found that the woman had been selling the stolen household items on a local Facebook group. The items for sale matched many of those that had been reported stolen, and police were able to positively identify the stolen property using photographs that were listed with the for sale items.
The police conducted a search of the woman's home and found several pieces of stolen property as well as additional evidence linking the woman to the burglaries. She was arrested and charged with multiple counts of burglary.
