October 19, 2020 – Ventura County, Ca.
When law enforcement receives a report of credible physical threats involving firearms, they take that pretty seriously. Such was the case on the afternoon of October 16, 2020, when Camarillo Police Department patrol units answered a call for service in which, according to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Peter Frank, the reported threats were “very direct, involved the use of firearms, and caused the victim to be in sustained fear of their safety.
As soon as that report was received by Camarillo Police Dispatch, Special Investigations Bureau and Special Enforcement Detail cops responded to the City of Ventura residence of 42-year-old Ryan Cade. Verbal contact was initiated with Cade, “but he refused to exit his room” and meet officers face-to-face. While detectives were conferring with Cade’s family members, he momentarily stepped outside, and then immediately “ran back inside in an effort to avoid arrest.”
With no warrant but with sufficient probable cause, the cops “followed Cade into the residence” and took him into custody without further incident. Pursuant to his arrest and the issuance of a search warrant, detectives then discovered Cade was in possession of an assault rifle with a loaded 30-round magazine, multiple handguns, high capacity magazines and “approximately 600 rounds of ammunition.”
Cade was transported to Ventura County Jail, where he was booked on charges of Criminal Threats and Possession of an Assault Rifle, with his bail set at $250,000.
