OXNARD - On April 6, 2017, State investigators assigned to the Ventura County Interagency Pharmaceutical Crimes Unit and the Ventura County Sheriff's West County Street Narcotics Unit concluded a one month narcotic investigation into Jason Holmbom, 45, of Oxnard, who was allegedly selling methamphetamine to residents of Ventura County.
Detectives detained Holmbom and executed a search warrant at his home where they found and seized methamphetamine, money deemed to be proceeds from drug sales, drug paraphernalia, and three loaded firearms, including a sawed-off shotgun. Holmbom is a convicted felon and is prohibited from owning or possessing any type of firearm.
“Removing drug dealers from communities and essentially putting them out of business, helps to improve the quality of life for residents,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “Drug users typically can’t hold down jobs and steal from others to live and get their next fix. I’m thankful that the investigators who entered this home where there were three loaded firearms, are safe.”
Holmbom was booked at the Ventura County Main Jail on numerous narcotic and weapon violations. His bail was set at $250,000.
