During the month of August 2021, the Oxnard Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) began an investigation related to Rudolfo Olmos a 42-year-old Oxnard resident, allegedly being involved in the sales of Fentanyl in the City of Oxnard. During the investigation, DEU detectives learned that Olmos had and active warrant for narcotics related offenses and further developed enough probable cause to obtain a search warrant for his residence.
On September 7th, and with the assistance of the Oxnard Special Enforcement Unit (SEU), K9 Rocky, and the Colonia Neighborhood Policing Team (NPT), detectives located Olmos driving in the city of Oxnard. SEU Officers and K9 Rocky conducted a traffic enforcement stop and arrested Olmos for his outstanding warrant. K9 Rocky conducted a search of the vehicle and located a large quantity of Fentanyl concealed in a void inside the vehicle. Additionally, K9 Rocky alerted to the dashboard of the vehicle and officers located a concealed loaded semi-automatic firearm.
SEU, K9 Rocky, NPT, and DEU detectives served a search warrant at Olmos’ residence in the 1400 block of San Gorgonio Avenue in Oxnard. During a search of the residence a large quantity of Fentanyl was located in Olmos’ bedroom along with tens of thousands of dollars in US currency. In total, over six pounds of Fentanyl was seized during the investigation. Based on information from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the amount of Fentanyl seized calculated to over 1.5 million potential lethal doses.
Rudolfo Olmos was arrested for felony firearms charges and felony narcotics sales charges. He was booked into the Ventura County Jail with a bail set at $250,000.
