On February 22, 2019, Detectives from the Ventura County Sheriff’s West County Narcotic Street Team, assisted by the Sheriff’s Special Investigations Unit, concluded a several month long investigation into the narcotic trafficking activities of Oxnard resident Jose Delgado by executing search warrants on his person, vehicles, storage locker, and residence.
On February 22, 2019, detectives executed a search warrant at Delgado’s storage locker facility in the city of Oxnard. During the search, detectives located approximately 2.5 pounds of methamphetamine, 2 ounces of cocaine, digital scales, packaging material, and cutting agents. At approximately 4:20 pm, Delgado was detained and arrested during a traffic stop near his home. After a search of his vehicle and person, detectives then executed a search warrant at Delgado’s residence located in the 600 block of West 6th Street in the city of Oxnard. There, detectives seized approximately 3 ounces of methamphetamine from his vehicles and a large sum of cash which was determined to be proceeds of narcotic sales.
Delgado was arrested and booked at the Ventura County Main Jail for possession of methamphetamine and cocaine for the purposes of sales. Delgado’s bail was set at $250,000. Delgado remains in-custody and is scheduled to appear in Ventura County Superior Court on March 7, 2019 at 1:15 pm in Court Room 12.
