OXNARD, Calif. - A Parolee and Post Release Offender (PRCS) were arrested with a loaded handgun and heroin on Saturday.

On Saturday around 7:45 p.m., officers from the Special Enforcement Unit conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for a traffic violation.  When the vehicle stopped, a passenger fled from the vehicle. 

The officers immediately recognized the fleeing subject as Jose Pineda.  Pineda is a documented criminal street gang member and had a felony warrant for a PRCS violation. Pineda was apprehended after a brief foot pursuit. After arresting and searching Pineda, police found heroin on him.

A second person in the vehicle was contacted during the stop.  The person, later identified as parolee Christhian Delgadillo, kept attempting to reach into a backpack that was on his lap and kept ordering the driver to flee the scene and that he “wasn’t going back”. 

Additional officers arrived on scene and Delgadillo was removed from the vehicle without incident. 

Officers learned that Delgadillo was on parole and searched the backpack he was attempting to reach into. 

Officers located a loaded handgun inside of the backpack.  A records search revealed Delgadillo previously spent time in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm.   

Delgadillo and Pineda are both documented criminal street gang members.  Both were arrested for violating the terms of their supervised release, narcotics and firearm charges are pending.
