Ventura County – Once a young man celebrates his 18th birthday, violations of the law—no matter how minor they may have been perceived by the justice system just a day before that anniversary—are no longer excused as the stuff of reckless teenage behavior. At that point of legislated adulthood, every criminal act is given the weight of lasting consequence.

According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Eduardo Malagon, the December 20th arrests of 18-year-old Oxnard residents Jacob Oseguera and Jorge Nunez, “both on active probation with search terms prohibiting them from possessing weapons” is a case in point.

Working on “information” that Oseguera was walking around the streets of Oxnard with a loaded gun in his possession, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Gang Unit began tracking Oseguera and finally caught up with him as he was “associating” with Nunez.

Imposing the terms of Oseguera’s and Nunez’s probation, detectives contacted both young men on a residential street in the community of El Rio.

A quick body search of Oseguera revealed a “shortened barrel 12-gauge shotgun in his waistband” along with shotgun ammunition in his shirt pockets.

While Oseguera was being patted down for additional weapons, the cops found Nunez armed with “a loaded .40 caliber firearm with a high-capacity magazine” loaded with 19 live rounds of ammo. Neither of the weapons found on the young men was legally registered.

At that point, both Oseguera and Nunez were taken into custody and transported to Ventura County Jail, where they were booked on numerous firearms violations as well as violation of their probation terms. Both are currently held without bail.
