Third Suspect Arrested For 2009 Murder In Ventura County

Posted on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 12:41am

There’s been a third arrest in the 2009 murder of a man in Oxnard.

Alfredo Vargas was fatally stabbed in a January, 2009 fight on the 2700 block of El Dorado Road in Oxnard. Detectives say the killing was linked to the Lemonwood Chicas gang.

Last week, they arrested Alexis Ramirez, and Jonathan Gallegos for the slaying.

Yesterday, officers spotted 19 year old Jorge Cervantes of Oxnard in a car near Pleasant Valley Road, and Perkins Road, and arrested him.

The arrests are the result of a special task force investigating five killings attributed to the Lemonwood Chicas gang.
