Skip to comments.DA, FBI investigating city of Oxnard
Posted on 08/14/2010 1:45:53 PM PDT by hoppity
A team of investigators with the Ventura County District Attorneys Office converged on Oxnards City Hall on Friday afternoon, locking down the building for several hours while they served a search warrant.
Late Friday the DAs chief investigator, Rob Briner, came out of City Hall briefly and confirmed his office was conducting an investigation of the city of Oxnard in conjunction with the FBI. Briner offered no further information on the investigation.
Much of the citys top management remained in the building throughout the afternoon and early evening, and temporarily closed signs were taped to front doors while deputies in green polo shirts stood guard in the lobby.
The warrant came after several top city officials were interviewed by investigators, city sources said.

Always a bad sign when the FBI arrives with ‘temporarily closed’ signs..
Where’s the Johnny Carson jokes when you need ‘em?
must be building permits or zoning.
That city has been taken over by illegals the past 20 years. Easy to be corrupt when your constituents don’t dare raise a ruckus ;-)
” must be building permits or zoning. “
I tried to build there on the beach 20 years ago, but I refused to pay the graft. Sold the lot.
Probably Checks bouncing, and city manager making a million dollar salary, but what the hell it’s all free enterprise.
My brother tried to do business with Oxnard twenty years ago. Said it was absolutely corrupt.
It’s also probably safe to say that very soon Atty Gen. Holder will be calling the Feds off of this case. Holder will probably fire anyone in the U.S. Attorney’s office there who had anything to do with this raid.
Your brother was spot on. I don’t mind a minor shakedown, but I draw the line at 50 grand ;-)
Sounds like a disgruntled former employee is spilling the refried beans on graft in the big projects going on there...
“Your brother was spot on. I dont mind a minor shakedown, but I draw the line at 50 grand ;-)”
In some areas of California 50 grand is merely a down payment.
“Sounds like a disgruntled former employee is spilling the refried beans on graft in the big projects going on there...”
When this Pelosi/Reid/Dodd/Frank recessions started, Liz and I commented that we would probably see libs all over “spilling the beans or in some cases Brie”.
Just for starters, if you wanted a beach lot approved, you had to hire the planners’ wife, who just happens to be a landscape architect. $ 10,000 out of the gate....for next to nothing in the way of lot improvement.
Disgruntled or not, if there are beans to spill I say spill ‘em!
Corruption is rampant.
