Publics’ Assistance Requested in Identifying Burglary Suspects


During the past two months, the Cities of Thousand Oaks and Camarillo have experienced a series of early morning burglaries at local pharmacies.  The suspects, who have yet to be identified, have forced entry into these pharmacies in order to steal narcotics and cash. Burglars who target pharmacies typically sell the stolen narcotics, causing powerful prescription narcotics to inundate the illegal drug market.
The suspects have committed burglaries at the following locations:

- 400 block of North Moorpark Road, Thousand Oaks.

The second suspect is described as Hispanic male, approximately 5’05” to 5’10” and about 170-200 lbs.
