Un hombre de Oxnard fue condenado a cadena perpetua sin derecho  libertad condicional por el asesinato en 2013 de una mujer de Santa Paula.

Andrés Rodríguez, de 32 años de Oxnard se declaró culpable el 12 de septiembre de los cargos de asesinato en primer grado con una cargo especial de secuestro, intento de asesinato premeditado y deliberado, y el uso de un arma en la ejecución de esos crímenes.

El 17 de julio de 2013, Rodríguez y su cómplice, Melissa Salazar, de 39 años de Santa Paula, secuestraron a una mujer a punta de pistola y la obligaron a divulgar la ubicación de un hombre y una mujer que robaron artículos de Rodríguez y Salazar ese mismo día.

La mujer llevó a los dos a una vivienda en Santa Paula, donde Rodríguez, armado con una pistola semiautomática y un chaleco antibalas, ingresó.

Rodríguez encontró a la pareja encerrada en un baño y realizó varios disparos contra la puerta del baño.

Rodríguez entró al baño y le disparó a la víctima en la cabeza, matándola, mientras la víctima masculina escapaba por la ventana.

Rodríguez y Salazar liberaron a la víctima del secuestro y luego huyeron a México.

Los dos fueron arrestados por detectives del Departamento de Policía de Santa Paula el 10 de septiembre de 2013, con la asistencia del Servicio de Alguaciles de los Estados Unidos.

EXTRAÑO POLVO BLANCO EN GUARDIA NACIONAL

La estación de la Guardia Nacional Aérea de las Channel Islands en Port Hueneme fue puesta en cuarentena preventiva, después de que se encontró una “sustancia blanca en polvo” en el cuarto de correos de la base.

Los Departamentos de Bomberos del Condado de Ventura y el de Oxnard respondieron para ayudar con el incidente de materiales peligrosos alrededor de las 2:30 p.m..

Los Bomberos de Ventura dicen que tres personas que trabajaban en la sala de correo principal fueron expuestas a la sustancia, por lo que fueron descontaminadas y transportadas al hospital local.

Los equipos de HAZMAT ingresaron a la sala de correo para recolectar una muestra de la sustancia para la prueba.

Alrededor de las 6:20 p.m. se determinó que el polvo blanco no era peligroso y la base se volvió a abrir.

ESTUDIANTE DE LOMPOC ENFRENTA SERIOS CASTIGOS

Un estudiante de la Escuela Primaria Buena Vista en Vandenberg Village podría enfrentarse a serios castigos después de amenazar a los estudiantes de la escuela en un mensaje de texto a un amigo.

El jueves por la noche, el SBCSD recibió la noticia de que un estudiante de la Escuela Primaria Buena Vista mandó un mensaje de texto a un compañero amenazando que destruiría la escuela.

Después de identificar al estudiante, los oficiales fueron a la casa donde confirmaron que el joven no tenía acceso a armas de fuego.

Las autoridades determinaron que no había ninguna amenaza para la escuela u otros estudiantes.

Sin embargo, el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Lompoc aseguró que notificaron a los padres del menor alrededor del mediodía del viernes sobre los hechos.

“Siempre nos gusta considerar a nuestras familias, nuestros padres y nuestros socios. Queremos asegurarnos de que al menos sepan que es algo de lo que estamos conscientes y algo de lo que nos hemos ocupado, y creemos que sus hijos están a salvo “, indicó Brian Jaramillo, Director de Servicios de Apoyo Estudiantil para el Distrito.

El Distrito dice que con más de 10,000 estudiantes, los conflictos entre los estudiantes no son poco comunes, pero las amenazas rara vez llegan a la administración.

Cualquier disciplina que el estudiante enfrentará será manejada por el Distrito Escolar, y no por el Alguacil.

LOMPOC STUDENT FACES DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS

A student at Buena Vista Elementary School in Vandenberg Village could be facing discipline after threatening students at the school in a text to a friend.

Thursday night the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office got word that a Buena Vista Elementary School student sent a text to a fellow student threatening violence on school property.

After identifying the students, deputies went to his home where they confirmed the young boy did not have access to any firearms.

Authorities determined there was no threat to the school or other students.

The Lompoc Unified School District says they notified parents at around noon Friday that there was a threat made against several students at the school.

“We always like to consider our families, our parents and our partners,” said Brian Jaramillo, Pupil Support Services Director for the district.

“We want to make sure that they at least know it’s something that we’re aware of and something that we’ve taken care of, and we feel that their children are safe.”

The district says that with more than 10,000 students, conflicts among students is not uncommon but the threats rarely make their way to the administration.

Any discipline the student will face will be handled by the School District, not the Sheriff’s office.

KIDNAPPER ARRESTED IN SANTA MARIA

Police arrested kidnapping suspect, Paul Maldonado, 30, of Santa Maria after he led police on a chase through the city with a 3-year-old boy in his vehicle.

Officers first began tailing Maldonado at around 5:30 p.m. after he allegedly hit a pedestrian on the 800 block of West Las Flores Way.

Officers discovered that the suspect had stolen the vehicle and kidnapped the child and then ran over a family member while trying to escape.

As he fled, the suspect vehicle caused multiple minor traffic collisions. Officers began chasing the suspect and requested assistance from California Highway Patrol.

A Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office helicopter flew over head to track Maldanado.

Eventually his vehicle’s engine stopped and he was taken into custody on the 100 block of East Tunnell Street.

The 3-year-old boy was removed safely from the vehicle.

Authorities say Maldonado is not related to the boy, and officers operated with great fear that Maldonado may harm the child if he were to get away from police.

Maldonado was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail and faces charges for domestic assault, kidnapping, child endangerment, assault with a deadly weapon, reckless evading, DUI, and driving without a license . ν

CAMARILLO MAN CONVICTED FOR EXPLOSION

A Ventura man will spend six months in jail for his part in causing a 2014 explosion at Santa Clara Waste Water Company in Santa Paula.

Kenneth Douglas Griffin, Jr., 22, of Ventura will also be placed on probation for three years after he was sentenced in Ventura County District Court on Thursday.

Griffin was an on-site supervisor at Santa Clara Waste Water Company when the explosion happened. Multiple employees and first responders were injured by the explosion or from toxic gas at the facility.

Griffin was involved in moving chemicals from the facility to an off-site storage lot to avoid enforcement efforts by the Ventura County Environmental Health Division. Griffin also failed to warn employees of the presence of a hazardous material known as sodium chlorite. He also failed to provide sufficient warning regarding chemicals that were mislabeled or entirely unlabeled at the facility.

Griffin will begin his jail sentence on October 13. He will also be forced to pay victim restitution, the amount of which will be determined at a later date.

He is also prohibited from supervising over employees handling hazardous materials while on probation.
