Here is the latest "East County Sheriff Watch" alert from the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.

If you would like these updates directly from him via email, click here for more information.
To the residents in the Casa Conejo residential area, a reminder to be vigilant and aware of what is happening in your area. On the evening of Monday, January 17th, into the morning of Tuesday, January 18th, we were hit with several vehicle burglaries. The crimes were committed on Jeanne Court, Michael Drive, Dena Drive, Randy Drive, Henry Drive and Wendy Drive.
Remember not to leave any valuables in your car, especially in plain sight. Most of these crimes were window smashes, where the criminal took personal property that was left in the car that could have easily been removed and taken inside your home. You can deter some of the crime by not making yourself an attractive victim to the criminals.
Please be aware of any suspicious activity in your neighborhood. REMAIN VIGILANT! We need your help to catch those responsible for this crime spree. If you see or hear anything you feel is suspicious, please call 911 or 654-9511.
