A road rage incident that occurred in Fillmore on Monday, April 1st, led to the arrest of an Oxnard man and woman for possessing a stolen firearm and a dagger.

On April 1st at approximately 9:45 a.m., Fillmore patrol deputies were alerted to a road rage incident that occurred at Telegraph Road and SR 126 in Fillmore. According to the victim, a subject, later identified as Jesse Ramos, flashed a handgun at the victim while they were driving through Fillmore. The victim was able to capture Ramos’ license plate and a description of the suspect and provided that to the Fillmore deputies.

A short time later, an alert deputy spotted Ramos’ car near Piru and stopped and detained Ramos and his passenger, Erin Powell. Deputies searched Ramos’ car and found a loaded 45 caliber handgun, reported stolen to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in 2015.
