Teen Robbery Suspect Arrested

Austin Jacquemin, an 18-year-old with a colorful Facebook and MySpace identity as a hard-partying skateboarder, is new to the world of legal adulthood.  According to Ventura County Sheriff spokesman Sgt. John J. Gleason, however, Jacquemin may not be quite so new to the world of armed robbery.

During the nighttime hours of March 12, a series of robberies and attempted robberies perpetrated by “a male suspect armed with a handgun and wearing a ski mask” were reported to Ventura County 911 Emergency.  The attempted robberies took place in the vicinity of an Albertson’s shopping center in the city of Camarillo, where responding Ventura County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Investigators pursued a rigorous investigation into the reported crimes.

Pursuant to that investigation and multiple witness accounts, detectives soon identified Jacquemin, a local resident, as “a person of interest”, according to Gleason.  The investigation progressed to the point that “sufficient probable cause was established” for the issuance of an arrest warrant of Jacquemin on suspicion of robbery and attempted robbery.

Two days later, March 14th, Jacquemin was contacted and found to be in possession of property reported stolen from one of his alleged victims.  A search warrant was then served upon Jacquemin’s residence, where substantial evidence—including a replica handgun, a ski mask, and various items of stolen property—was found.

Jacquemin was booked into Ventura County Main Jail on charges of robbery and attempted robbery, with his bail set at $505,000, which presumably qualifies him for full adulthood in the criminal justice world.
