Two Hour Standoff Ends Peacefully

Juan Miguel Bejar was arrested on Saturday night, December 28, 2013, in the City of Ventura after an approximate two hour standoff with the Ventura Police Department’s S.W.A.T team. Ventura Police Officers attempted to contact Bejar in the 100 block of West Simpson Street shortly before midnight.

During the contact officers heard a possible gunshot from inside the residence prompting the S.W.A.T team response. Bejar was eventually arrested and booked into the Ventura County Jail on outstanding Santa Barbara County warrants and a parole hold. Bejar is currently in custody in Ventura County jail. He will be transported later to Santa Barbara County and booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail. No bail is set due to the parole hold.
