On Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 10:50 p.m., officers attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation.  The driver failed to stop and a brief pursuit ensued for approximately one minute.  During the half-mile pursuit, the driver committed additional traffic violations before stopping the vehicle and fleeing on foot. The driver, Saul Guillen a 21-year-old Oxnard resident, was taken into custody near the intersection of Channel Islands Boulevard and C Street.  The vehicle, which was determined to be stolen, was released to the registered owner.  Guillen was booked at the Ventura County Jail for the unlawful driving of a stolen vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle, resisting arrest and a violation of parole.
The Oxnard Police Department Auto Theft Task Force (OATTF), is asking for help from the community to reduce auto theft by never leaving keys in unattended vehicles.  The OATTF was launched in early 2015 to proactively locate and arrest those responsible for committing auto thefts in Oxnard.  The objective of the task force is to reduce the number of auto thefts through education, intervention, and enforcement.  Anyone with information related to stolen vehicles is encouraged to call 385-7664 and can remain anonymous or the Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (805) 222-8477 and www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org
