Detectives from the Camarillo Police Department’s Special Enforcement Detail (SED) arrested Rebecca Fine for illegally possessing firearms.
During the months of August and September 2022, detectives assigned to Camarillo SED conducted an investigation into the illegal possession of a firearm by Rebecca Fine. Specifically, Camarillo SED investigated the illegal possession of a “Ghost gun” by Fine. A “Ghost gun” is a non-serialized and untraceable firearm that can be assembled by purchasing firearm products online. Often times, these firearms are possessed by persons prohibited from owning or possessing firearms.
On August 30, 2022, detectives assigned to the Camarillo SED obtained a search warrant to search Fine and her residence for the illegal firearm possession. On September 1, 2022, at approximately 1945 hours, SED Detectives and Camarillo Investigations Detectives located and detained Fine in the City of Oxnard. During the contact, SED Detectives located ammunition in Fine’s vehicle.
SED Detectives then executed a search warrant at Fine’s residence in the City of Oxnard. During the search, SED Detectives located three firearms and ammunition in Fine’s residence. One of the firearms was a black pistol. SED Detectives confirmed the firearm possessed by Fine did not have any serial numbers and was in fact a “Ghost gun.”
Detectives also located an AR-15 rifle in Fine’s bedroom. This firearm had a collapsible stock, a pistol grip that protruded beneath the action of the weapon, and a magazine release capable of releasing magazines without the upper receiver being detached from the lower receiver. The rifle was classified as an assault weapon. Upon further investigation, the rifle was reported stolen out of the city of Ventura.
Additionally, Detectives located a .357 magnum revolver in Fine’s bedroom.
Fine is a convicted felon and cannot legally possess firearms.
Fine was booked into the Ventura County Jail for unlawful transfer of a firearm, possession of an assault weapon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon or addict, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, and grand theft firearm over $950.
The Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail is comprised of five plain clothes detectives who focus on efforts that negatively affect the quality of life of the law-abiding citizens of Camarillo. The goal of Camarillo SED is to reduce property and violent crime through investigations and directed enforcement.
Anyone with information about criminal activity occurring within the city of Camarillo is encouraged to contact the Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail (SED) at (805) 388-5100. Callers can remain anonymous. Information can also be provided by email at [email protected].
