Probationer accused of 3D printing gun parts
VENTURA — A 31-year-old Ventura man was charged with multiple felony firearm violations after he was suspected of manufacturing gun parts at his home using a 3D printer, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies first made contact with the man at 5:45 p.m. Sept. 15 in the 1200 block of North Ventura Avenue.
The man was pulled over during a traffic stop and detained under the conditions of his probation. A probation search was later conducted at his home in the 300 block of Barry Street.
The search yielded four pistol receivers which appeared to have been created by using a 3D printer at the residence. Officers also found a pistol magazine, switchblade knives and a rifle magazine.
The suspect is prohibited from owning or possessing firearms and their parts under terms of his probation, according to authorities. He was arrested and booked into county jail on suspicion of firearms violations.
On Monday, the Ventura County District Attorney's Office filed four charges of felony possession of a firearm by a prohibited person due to probation term conditions. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and has since been released on his own recognizance, according to online court records.

Juvenile charged in Oxnard teen murder
VENTURA COUNTY — The Ventura County District Attorney's Office filed a petition in juvenile court on Thursday charging a 15-year-old Oxnard teenager with the murder of a 14-year-old victim last week. Prosecutors also released new details about the case.
The homicide occurred shortly before 8 p.m. on Sept. 12 in the 1300 block of South C Street.
The victim, identified by Oxnard police as Leonardo Gonzalez Jimenez, 14, of Oxnard, was confronted by the male suspect earlier in the evening near Durley Park, according to the DA's office. Jimenez walked away from the confrontation and went to a bus stop on C Street where he waited for a family member to pick him up.
While Jimenez was standing on the sidewalk near the bus stop, the suspect allegedly rode by in a vehicle and shot the victim multiple times. Jimenez was pronounced dead that night. Oxnard police arrested the suspect on Sept. 18.
The DA's filing also alleges personal use of a firearm by the 15-year-old.
The juvenile will be arraigned on the murder charge at the Juvenile Justice Courthouse at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 3 in courtroom J4. He remains in custody at the Juvenile Justice Facility.
