Two people were arrested this week for allegedly operating a psychic scam in Lompoc, police said, asking other possible victims to contact detectives.

In the latter part of 2015, victims reported being scammed out of large sums of money by a psychic operating at 1005 E. Ocean Ave., Sgt. Kevin Martin said. 

On Thursday, detectives served a search warrant at the site, which is both a business and residences.

During the service of a search warrant, detectives found more than $12,000 in cash and evidence of various financial transactions with large sums of money, Martin said. 

A large amount of Cartier and Gucci jewelry also was found inside the residence, police said.

Arrested were Gina Lucyfenia Lee and Anthony Lee Davis, both 29, on suspicion of obtaining money under false pretenses, grand theft, conspiracy and taking, destroying or damaging property in the commission of a felony.

They were booked in lieu of $1 million bail, police said.

Police are seeking information about others who may have victimized by the pair and asking people to call Detective Corey Cox at 805.736.2341, ext. 8159.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
