On Wednesday, August 3, 2016 at 12:15 p.m., the Oxnard Police Department completed a two-month long investigation into narcotics sales involving 54 year old Jeffrey Schultz who resides in the 3200 block of Taffrail Lane in Oxnard.
The Oxnard Police Department Neighborhood Policing Team was seeking a narcotics search warrant for Schultz’ home; where he lives with his 74 year old mother. The Team worked closely with narcotics investigators, to develop information to seek the search warrant.
This afternoon the Oxnard Police Department S.W.A.T. team served a search warrant and detained six people inside of the home with four being arrested for a variety of narcotics violations.
Investigators conducted a thorough search of the home and an inspection was done by Code Compliance after numerous city code violations were found. An alarming part of this case was the living conditions within the home and the poor care that Shultz’ 74 year old mother received. She is unable to care for herself and she had several obvious signs of neglect and poor hygiene. She was transported to a local hospital by ambulance for examination and a social worker was assigned to oversee her case by Ventura County Adult Protective Services.
Schultz’ elderly mother was essentially being cared for by narcotics users and acquaintances of her son. Glen Wilson, 54, was detained inside and he told officers that he was her caregiver and was taking responsibility for her daily care. Wilson was searched and officers found a small amount of methamphetamine in his pocket and a glass pipe used to smoke narcotics. This was concerning to officers as he was supposed to be caring for Mrs. Schultz but he appears to be an active drug user.
Jeffrey Schultz was arrested for 11366 H&S, for maintaining a narcotics house; 11378 H&S and 11351 H&S for the sales of narcotics; 368 PC Felony Elder Abuse. Cynthia Wigton, 47, of Ventura, Charles Hardison III, 33, of Ventura, and Glen Wilson, 54, of Oxnard were arrested for various narcotics violations. Wilson was also booked for Felony Elder Abuse. .
