The investigation culminated with the arrest of Plancarte-Hernandez in the City of Thousand Oaks.

Detectives learned through their investigation that Plancarte-Hernandez and the victim, a 38 year old female, were in a short dating relationship in 2016. The victim ended her relationship with Plancarte-Hernandez, after which she began to receive phone calls and text messages from Plancarte-Hernandez during all hours of the day and night. In an attempt to stop the Plancarte-Hernandez from Cyberstalking her, the victim “blocked” Plancarte-Hernandez’ number but he was able to circumvent it by using various smart phone applications that allowed him to call and text the victim from different numbers.

Detectives also learned that Plancarte-Hernandez was able to “hack’ into the victim’s social media sites, Pay-Pal account, iCloud account, and cell phone account to make changes in the accounts. The victim, in an attempt to stop Plancarte-Hernandez, changed her cell phone number, email address, Apple ID and all electronic means of identifying herself. Plancarte- Hernandez was still able to contact her via cell phone and email.

In a further attempt to liberate herself from the stalking, the victim also moved from the city of Moorpark to the city of Thousand Oaks in an attempt to elude Plancarte-Hernandez but he was still able to locate her. Plancarte-Hernandez sent threatening text messages to the victim that included current events in the victims’ life that Plancarte-Hernandez could have only known if he was nearby and watching the victim.

On June 7, 2018, at approximately 1128 hours, Thousand Oaks Police Department Detectives located Plancarte-Hernandez seated in a parked vehicle directly in front of the victim’s residence on the 300 block of Los Padres Drive.
