For the past several months, several cities within the Ventura County and Los Angeles areas have been experiencing late night commercial burglaries of closed businesses. The suspects have been seen on video surveillance breaking out windows to the establishments and taking cash drawers and safes inside the businesses.

The vehicle turned off its lights and pulled up to the businesses before noticing a police vehicle in the area. The vehicle quickly left the area and was ultimately stopped by police.

Numerous tools, clothing, gloves, cash, masks and property linked to several other recent burglaries were found inside the vehicle.
Thousand Oaks Detectives are conducting an ongoing investigation of the suspects for other crimes and have connected them to crimes in other jurisdictions.
