|On December 12, 2018, Detectives from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit concluded a narcotics sales investigation into Carlos Rojas Solano out of Long Beach, who was involved in the transportation of narcotics to Ventura County.
On December 12, 2018, detectives contacted Solano in the 500 Block of N. Ventu Park Road in Thousand Oaks. Detectives searched Solano’s vehicle pursuant to the investigation.
