Arrest In Ventura County Stalking Case

Wednesday June 13, 2018

     According to the authorities, a Ventura County woman was the victim of a relentless stalker for more than 18 months, with the harassment happening both Online and in real life.

   They say the 38-year-old woman briefly dated a man in 2016, but when the dating stopped, the stalking began.

   Detectives allege that 33-year-old Raul Plancarte-Hernandez of North Hills made 300 phone calls and sent more than 4,000 text messages to the woman.

    They say Plancarte-Hernandez hacked into the woman's social media, Pay Pal, and other Online accounts and changed things.

    Detectives say the woman blocked her phone number and text accounts and changed her email and other Online accounts and moved from Moorpark to Thousand Oaks in an attempt to stop the stalking, but they say Plancarte-Hernandez found a way to get around the block and found out her new Online accounts.

    They also say he found her new home in Thousand Oaks.

    Detectives say many of his phone calls and text messages were threatening and also included information that indicated he was physically stalking her.

     Earlier this month, detectives found Plancarte-Hernandez sitting in a parked car in front of her home.

     They finally arrested him for stalking.

     Plancarte-Hernandez pleaded not guilty to felony stalking and remains in the Ventura County Jail with bail set at $100,000.
