January 26, 2021 – Ventura County, Ca.
When Santa Barbara residents Jeffrey Jackson, 25, and Alissa Diessner, 33, found themselves on foot and prowling through the Vons Shopping Center parking lot on the outskirts of The City of Ojai on the evening of January 25th, they apparently decided that they could travel much more conveniently if they were traveling by car.


According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Brian Kppenjan, the VCSD Ojai Police Station received “a call reporting a carjacking” that had just taken place at that location.

Deputies responded to the scene with all due alacrity to find a “battered” victim reporting that two suspects had accosted him and “forcibly removed the car keys from his person.” Witnesses reported that the suspects drove off in the victim’s car just before the arrival of uniformed deputies.

With a detailed vehicle description, the stolen car’s license number was then transmitted to the Sheriff’s Department Advanced Real-Time Information Center. Not long afterward, the ARTIC was alerted by the Automated License Plate Reader system stationed in the Oxnard area. As the stolen vehicle moved through Ventura County, it was located in motion in the City of Ventura.

With real-time information as to the whereabouts of the stolen vehicle, deputies spotted it and conducted “a high-risk traffic stop.” Contact was then made with Jackson and Diessner, who were taken into custody and transported to Ventura County Jail.

Jackson was booked on “an unrelated domestic violence incident” and on multiple charges involved in the carjacking. He remains in custody with his bail set at $230,000. Diessner was booked on drug related charges with her bail set at $20,000.
