Gun Arrest


On Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at 6:58 p.m., two Volunteers In Policing personnel with the Ventura Police Department were patrolling the parking lot of the Telephone Road Plaza in the 4700 block of Telephone Road, when they were stopped by a manager of one of the stores.  The manager reported to them that a vehicle involved in an earlier attempted theft was back in the parking lot and was concerned the subjects had returned to commit more thefts.
Officers were dispatched and located the vehicle unoccupied in the parking lot near the Burlington Coat Factory.  The officers checked the area and located the suspect, later identified as Jennifer Wilson, 49,  inside of the store.  While speaking to Wilson, she admitted to having drug paraphernalia inside of her purse.  Officers searched the purse and in addition to finding the paraphernalia, Wilson was found to be in possession of a loaded small caliber handgun. Wilson was arrested and booked into the Ventura County Jail for the listed violations.  No additional subjects were located.
