uly 10, 2020 – Ventura County, Ca.
Undoubtedly a leading nominee for the 2020 Darwin Awards, 30-year-old Oak View resident
Fidencio Ramirez found himself in handcuffs on the afternoon of July 3rd , following a night of
indulging himself in unbridled artistic expression.

According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Det. Sgt. Victor Medina, evidence of Ramirez’s activities came to the attention of law enforcement early in the morning of July 3 rd when they “discovered frequent gang graffiti” throughout Oak View that was visible “all along the Highway 33 corridor,” a heavily-traveled local area freeway.

Seeing private and public property defaced by gang graffiti is like sand in the eye of the VCSD Gang Unit deputies, and an investigation into this episode was begun immediately. Deputies quickly discovered nearly a dozen businesses and public places that had been vandalized overnight, with video surveillance evidence identifying Ramirez as the culprit.

On parole for a felony robbery conviction, and as a documented local area gang member, Ramirez is well known to local law enforcement. At approximately 3:00 p.m. that afternoon, Ramirez was contacted at his residence and taken into custody.

He was then transported to Ventura County Jail, where he was booked on charges of Felony Vandalism, Street Terrorism, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Violation of Parole Terms. He remains in custody on a no-bail hold.
