Ventura County – It was in the dead of night—approximately 2:50 A.M.—when Thousand Oaks Police Department patrol deputies were alerted to a residential burglary in progress at a local area apartment complex.
Deputies arrived at the location and were informed that a female victim had been asleep when her dog barked loudly and awakened her.
According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Detective Adam Garnier, she quickly “got out of bed and saw an unknown suspect inside her living room.” The victim then “yelled out” to another family member, whereupon the suspect promptly fled the premises.
At daybreak, TOPD Detectives attached to the Directed Enforcement Unit began to investigate and to interview witnesses.
They soon determined that the suspected burglar was 25-year-old Ventura resident Ryan Doran, and that he would likely be found in the vicinity of the nearby Thousand Oaks Mall.
Following that lead, detectives did indeed track Doran to the Thousand Oaks Mall parking lot. He was contacted and taken into custody at that time. He was then transported to Ventura County Jail, where he was booked on a charge of first degree burglary with “numerous special enhancements,” with his bail set at $110,000.
