Weapons Arrest


On Friday, April 8, 2016 at 12:12 a.m., patrol officers were dispatched to the area of the 200 block of Wilson Avenue for several shots heard in the alley.  Officers responded to the area and located an occupied vehicle in the vicinity of the shots fired call.  Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle and the driver initially failed to yield.  The driver, identified as 22 year old Oxnard resident Roberto Cisneros, ultimately stopped his vehicle in the 100 block of Cordova Street and was taken into custody for driving on a suspended license, and for resisting arrest.  During a search of the vehicle, officers located a loaded firearm. The initial report from an alert Oxnard resident likely resulted in the arrest of Cisneros and the removal of another firearm from the streets of Oxnard.  The Oxnard Police Department continues to encourage residents to be partners in public safety as part of the Operation Safer and Stronger initiative. If anyone has further information, they are encouraged to call Oxnard PD at (805) 385-7547.  If you wish to remain anonymous you may call the violent crimes hotline at (805) 982-7070 or Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
