Mosqueda, David
On June 23, 2021, members of the Ventura County Post Release Offender Supervision Unit contacted and arrested David Mosqueda for possession of unregistered firearms and narcotics sales.    
The PROS Unit went to the 1500 Block of Pine Street in Oxnard to conduct a compliance check of Post Release Offender David Mosqueda, who is supervised by the Ventura County Probation Agency.  Probation officers contacted Mosqueda inside the business where he lives and works.    
During a search, officers located methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine, and evidence supporting narcotics sales.  Additionally, officers located an unregistered firearm and a short-barreled shotgun.  The firearm located is commonly referred to as a “Ghost Gun” due to the lack of commercial serial number, which makes the firearm untraceable and allows the possessor to circumvent regulated background checks by the Department of Justice.  Mosqueda’s past criminal history prohibits him from owning and or possessing any firearms or ammunition. 
Mosqueda was arrested and detectives with the Sheriff’s Gang Unit assisted at the scene.  Detectives obtained a search warrant to search the remainder of the business.  Detectives seized an additional unregistered firearm, ammunition, and prescription pills.  Mosqueda was booked at the Pre-Trial Detention Facility and is awaiting court proceedings.     
The Ventura County Post Release Offender Supervision Unit is comprised of Deputy Probation officers from the Ventura County Probation Agency, a Ventura Police Department officer, a Simi Valley Police Department officer, and a deputy sheriff with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.
