On November 24, 2018, at approximately 3:50 PM, a residence in the 13600 block of Donny Brook Lane was burglarized. Suspicious activity was witnessed as two males unknown to the neighborhood were seen entering the backyard of a residence and later seen entering a vehicle occupied by a third suspicious male. The witness was able to provide a detailed description of the suspects and contacted the police.
Ventura County Sheriff’s Deputies from the Moorpark Police Station located the suspect’s vehicle and after an enforcement stop was attempted, the suspects fled, driving recklessly.
