On December 5, 2012, Detectives from the Camarillo Detectives Bureau and Camarillo Special
Enforcement Unit served a search warrant at a residence in the 200 block of 11th Street, in the city of
Santa Paula. (S) Aysha Scott, who was out on bail from Santa Barbara County for identity theft, was

During the search, detectives recovered a large amount of stolen property, stolen credit cards, stolen
mail and items used for identity theft purposes. Detectives have identified multiple theft victims from

investigation and victim identification is ongoing. The victims are also being told that they are
potentially victims of identity theft.
This is a good time to remind everyone that identity thieves can gain your personal information from
multiple sources. They break into your cars, steal your mail, and use skimmer machines at gas stations
and retail establishments. They can also get your information from the internet and from your trash.
You can help prevent identity theft by using paper shredders to destroy bills and important documents,
using locked mailboxes, and by not giving out your personal information over the phone or the internet.
Banks and credit organizations will never call you and ask you for your pin code, or Social Security
number. Once a year you should check your credit history to ensure you do not have any unauthorized
accounts on your credit. You can get this report for free online at:
