According to a report by The Ventura County Star, on October 31, Camarillo police arrested a man on suspicion of residential burglary.
Police officials stated that they received a report of suspicious behavior in the 700 block of Treuno Avenue on the early morning of the last day of October. Witnesses allegedly saw a stranger peer through the windows of homes in the area.
One female resident told officers that her home had been burglarized. An investigation of the area yielded a backpack full of supposedly stolen property.
Police suspected a certain 32-year-old male individual. They conducted a warrant-supported search of his home and allegedly discovered stolen items.
The suspect may possibly face multiple counts of residential burglary, possession of burglary tools, and being under the influence of a controlled substance while in possession of a firearm.
At the time of the report, he was being held at Ventura County jail. His bail was set at $50,000.
California Penal Code Section 459 states: “Every person who enters any house, room, apartment, tenement … with intent to commit grant or petit larceny or any felony is guilty of burglary.” Standard penalties for a burglary conviction include a prison sentence of two, four, or six years and a fine that can go up to five figures. Additionally, residential burglary is considered a strike offense, and if a person with two prior strikes on his or her criminal record is convicted with this crime, he or she may face life imprisonment.
