On 01/11/2013, Deputies from the Camarillo police station conducted a traffic enforcement stop on an Acura sedan in the city of Camarillo and identified the driver as Baldomero Alamillo. While talking to Alamillo, the deputies smelled an odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.
During a search of the vehicle, a loaded semi-automatic handgun and additional ammunition was located. A records check on the handgun revealed Alamillo was not the registered owner. The deputies attempted to locate the registered owner of the handgun, with negative results.
During the investigation, Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail detectives located and contacted the registered owner of the handgun. The owner of the handgun told investigators that the handgun that was recovered from Alamillo's vehicle, along with three other firearms and property were stolen sometime in 2008; the other three firearms were not recovered by our investigators.
On 02/01/2013, deputies from the Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail (SED) and the Ventura County Sheriff's Gang Unit (SGU) served a search warrant at Alamillo's residence in the city of Santa Paula. A search of Alamillo's vehicle and residence revealed Alamillo was in possession of marijuana and cocaine, along with corresponding evidence indicating he is involved in narcotic sales. Two additional firearms and ammunition were also located and seized as evidence.
Alamillo was arrested and booked at the Ventura County Main Jail for PC 496(a)-Possession of Stolen Property and H&S 11351-Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sale.
