On January 10, 2019, patrol deputies from the Thousand Oaks Police Station were dispatched to

the 500 Block of Laurie Lane regarding a possible overdose victim. Prior to their arrival, a

concerned citizen reported a disturbance and seeing an unknown subject discarding a duffel bag

near a vehicle in the carport of the apartment complex in question.

Upon arrival, patrol deputies made contact with Matthew Robledo who was visiting at the

residence and determined he was not suffering from a drug overdose, but was believed to be

under the influence of narcotics. Patrol deputies also contacted Travis Trent who lived at the

residence. Patrol deputies contacted and interviewed the occupants. Patrol deputies were

diligent in their investigation and quickly determined narcotics sales activity taking place at the

residence. Narcotics Detectives were summoned to assist with the investigation as well as an

Investigator from the District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigations.

Patrol deputies found the duffel bag in question and found it had been discarded near a vehicle

belonging to Trent. Inside the duffel bag, deputies located two firearms and a large quantity of

Codeine syrup. Codeine syrup is highly abused and is illegal to possess without the proper

prescription from a medical professional. The duffel bag and the contents were determined to

belong to both Trent and Robledo.

Detectives ultimately conducted a search of Trent’s apartment pursuant to Trent’s Ventura

County probation terms. In all, detectives seized 238 grams of concentrated cannabis, 1,484

grams of marijuana, 4.8 grams of Psilocybin mushrooms, 120 ounces of Promethazine/Codeine

syrup, two unregistered firearms and a large quantity of money believed to be proceeds from

narcotics sales. Detectives also seized evidence indicative of illegal narcotics sales.

Trent and Robledo were both ultimately arrested and booked at the East Valley Jail on various

narcotics and firearms charges.
