During the month of May, 2018, detectives from the Thousand Oaks Police Department began an investigation of Raul Plancarte-Hernandez stalking a female resident of Thousand Oaks. The investigation culminated with the arrest of Plancarte-Hernandez in the City of Thousand Oaks.

Detectives learned through their investigation that Plancarte-Hernandez and the victim were in a short dating relationship in 2016. The victim ended her relationship with Plancarte-Hernandez, after which she began to receive phone calls and text messages from Plancarte-Hernandez during all hours of the day and night. In an attempt to stop the Plancarte-Hernandez from Cyberstalking her, the victim “blocked” Plancarte-Hernandez’ number but he was able to circumvent it by using various smart phone applications that allowed him to call and text the victim from different numbers.

Plancarte-Hernandez’ Cyberstalking campaign consisted of calling the victim approximately 300 times and texting the victim approximately 4000 times in the last year and a half since their break up. Detectives also learned that Plancarte-Hernandez was able to “hack’ into the victim’s social media sites, Pay-Pal account, iCloud account, and cell phone account to make changes in the accounts. The victim, in an attempt to stop Plancarte-Hernandez, changed her cell phone number, email address, Apple ID and all electronic means of identifying herself. Plancarte-Hernandez was still able to contact her via cell phone and email.

In a further attempt to liberate herself from the stalking, the victim also moved from the city of Moorpark to the city of Thousand Oaks in an attempt to elude Plancarte-Hernandez but he was still able to locate her. Plancarte-Hernandez sent threatening text messages to the victim that included current events in the victims’ life that Plancarte-Hernandez could have only known if he was nearby and watching the victim.

On June 7, 2018, at approximately 1128 hours, Thousand Oaks Police Department Detectives located Plancarte-Hernandez seated in a parked vehicle directly in front of the victim’s residence on the 300 block of Los Padres Drive. Plancarte-Hernandez had parked the vehicle amongst other vehicles on the street and concealed himself in the vehicle by placing sunshades in the windows. Plancarte-Hernandez was actively stalking the victim and sending her unwanted text messages.

Plancarte-Hernandez was arrested for stalking, an active misdemeanor warrant, and booked into the Ventura County Jail. On June 12, 2018, Plancarte-Hernandez was arraigned in Ventura County Superior Court on the stalking charge and was remanded to custody in lieu of bail in the amount of $100,000.00.
