Narrative:
On November 5, 2019, detectives with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office concluded a month long investigation and arrested a male juvenile from Oak Park for his involvement in narcotic sales to other minors. 
 
During the month of October 2019, deputies from the Thousand Oaks Patrol Station responded to Oak Park High School reference a female juvenile who had ingested Xanax.  The female juvenile was evaluated and eventually treated at a local hospital for the ingestion of Xanax and possibly “molly” (MDMA).  The female juvenile was also in possession of Xanax and “molly.”  Patrol deputies conducted a preliminary investigation, which implicated a male juvenile from the Oak Park area as being responsible for the sales and distribution of the prescription pills in question.  Narcotics detectives were notified and began an investigation into the juvenile suspect.    
 
On October 30, 2019, deputies from the Thousand Oaks Police Department responded to the 700 Block of Lakeview Canyon Road reference a female juvenile overdosing on illegally obtained Oxycodone prescription medication.  The female juvenile was taken to the hospital for treatment.  Patrol deputies conducted a preliminary investigation and contacted detectives from the Narcotics Unit.  Detectives with the Pharmaceutical Crimes Unit responded and assisted with the investigation.  During the investigation, detectives were able to gather evidence implicating the male juvenile from Oak Park as the person who supplied the Oxycodone and Xanax to both the female juveniles. 
 
On November 5, 2019, detectives authored and obtained a search warrant for the male juvenile’s residence located in the 6800 Block of Falconview Lane in Oak Park.  During the investigation and warrant service, detectives contacted and arrested the male juvenile.  Additionally, detectives contacted and arrested a second male juvenile who was also in possession of marijuana and psilocybin mushrooms for sale.  During the search of a vehicle associated to the juveniles and the residence, detectives located evidence indicative of the sales of “molly,” psilocybin mushrooms, Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and prescription medication.  In all, detectives seized 524 grams of marijuana, 124 THC vape cartridges, 54 capsules containing “molly” or MDMA, 54 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, 100 doses of LSD, Oxycodone pills and Promethazine with codeine.
 
Both juveniles were arrested for narcotic sales charges.  The male juvenile from Oak Park was lodged at the Juvenile Justice Center in Oxnard.  The male juvenile from Agoura was cited and released to his father.     
 
MDMA (Molly) is an illegal and dangerous “club drug” that is abused for its stimulant and hallucinogenic properties.  LSD is also illegal and abused for its hallucinogenic properties. MDMA and LSD are extremely dangerous and their use can lead to severe medical complications and even death.  Prescription medications such as Oxycodone and Promethazine are highly abused and are illegal to possess without a prescription from a medical doctor. 
 
Prescription medications are a contributor to both fatal and non-fatal overdoses taking place in Ventura County.  The Narcotics Unit is committed to aggressively target narcotics sales and help combat opiate overdoses in Ventura County through aggressive narcotic enforcement.  The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office would like to encourage parents to speak to their children about the dangers of abusing both legally and illegally prescribed medications, narcotics and other illicit substances available by narcotics traffickers.
 
The public may contact investigators from the Ventura County Interagency Pharmaceutical Crimes Unit at (805) 383-8700 or pharm.tip@ventura.org with additional information about this case, or any other information related to narcotics.
