     Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested an Oxnard man for various gun and drug violations plus child endangerment.

     They alleged that 31-year-old Omar Macias, who is a convicted felon, was found in possession of guns and illegal drugs at his home in the 700 block of Forest Park Boulevard Wednesday morning.

     They say since he is a felon, he cannot possess a gun yet they found two loaded, unregistered handguns in the home where two school-aged children live and have access to them.

     In addition, deputies say that they found illegal drugs and evidence of illegal drug sales in the home.

     Macias was booked into the Ventura County Jail with bail set at $110,000.




     As part of that multi-million dollar pavement rehabilitation project on the 101 in the northwest section of Ventura County, there is a freeway on-ramp closure in effect during the midday hours during the next couple of days.

     The on-ramp to southbound 101 south of Mussel Shoals is being closed Thursday and Friday of this week from 9 AM to 3 PM each day.

     The off-ramp to southbound 101 remains open.

     However, it might be delayed or postponed due to weather conditions.
