Ventura County – Task Force Narcotics Arrests Related to Multiple Overdoses

In January 2023, all Ventura County law enforcement agencies and the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office joined together and created the Ventura County Fentanyl Overdose and Crimes Units (VC FOCUS). This task force has enabled the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and the county’s municipal police departments to mutually support each other with personnel and resources to investigate the sources of fentanyl supply to Ventura County, as well as the dealers responsible for selling this deadly product within our community. This partnership allowed VC FOCUS to conduct investigations on recent fatal and non-fatal overdoses that occurred in the city of Simi Valley which have resulted in several arrests.  Please click the link for more details:
