Burglars Targeting Homes Undergoing Fumigation In Oxnard

Posted on Monday, February 27, 2012 3:44pm

Oxnard Police detectives are investigating a string of burglaries involving homes which were tented for fumigation.

Nine homes undergoing treatment have been burglarized in the city in the last five weeks.  Police say in the most recent incident, which occurred on South K Street over the weekend, they made an arrest.  However, detectives say they think Javier Romo was only one of possibly multiple burglars cutting into the tents to take items from the homes.

The burglaries have occurred in six different neighborhoods since January 25th.   Oxnard Police say if you are going to have your home fumigated, you should notify the department so they can increase patrols in the area.
