Car bought with stolen credit card

OXNARD – Police arrested a man and woman Tuesday night after learning an Oxnard car dealership had sold them a 2018 Toyota Camry paid for with a victim’s stolen credit card and ID, the Oxnard Police Department reported.

The case stemmed from an auto burglary reported to the Los Angeles Police Department on July 2, during which the car owner’s identification cards, credit cards and checks were stolen from the vehicle, authorities said.

On the same day, the suspects, identified as a 38-year-old man from Inyo County and an Oxnard woman, 30, reportedly bought the Camry with the stolen card.

The fraudulent purchase was reported to Oxnard police on Tuesday. Detectives soon found the vehicle, with the pair inside, in the 2000 block of North Rose Avenue. Both suspects were taken into custody without incident and arrested on suspicion of various felonies, authorities said.
