A pair of Oxnard brothers have been arrested and charged with a multitude of drug crimes. Jose and Jesus Ceja were arrested following an investigation by a multi-agency narcotics task force, which turned up evidence that the brothers were selling drugs.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, the Oxnard Police Department and the West County Street Team executed a search warrant at a home occupied by Jose Ceja. At the time, Ceja was attempting to flee the residence. When he was arrested, police found more than 3 ounces of methamphetamine in his possession.
In addition, police discovered additional quantities of methamphetamine and heroin, and a large sum of cash, consistent with an active drug-selling operation. Jesus Ceja, Jose’s brother, was found inside the home during the search warrant execution. He was under the influence of a controlled substance at the time of the search and was also arrested.
