Lompoc Police Arrest Husband of Daycare Provider on Child Molestation Charges

​On Tuesday, the Lompoc Police Department Detective Bureau served a search warrant and arrest warrant at a home of a licensed daycare provider located in the northeast side of the city.

Recently, a female juvenile came forward with information alleging that one of the day care providers molested her in the past.

Detectives were able to gather probable cause for the issuance of the search and arrest warrants.

Salvador Moreno Mojarras Jr. was arrested at the home without incident.

He was booked in the Santa Barbara County Jail on charges of: a lewd and lascivious act with a child under 14; continuous sexual abuse of a child; suspect over the age of 18 having intercourse with a child 10 years or younger; and suspect over the age of 18 engaging in oral copulation with a victim 10 years or younger. 

Bail was set at $250,000. 

Lompoc Police Department detectives made an attempt to notify all the parents of the children that currently attend the day care facility prior to the distribution of this press release.

The home day care facility has been in operation for several years. Any other potential victims and/or witnesses that were supervised by Mojarras are encouraged to come forward with information. 

If you are concerned that your child may have been the victim of child molestation while attending the day care facility, please do not attempt to interrogate your child.

Instead, please contact Detective Lamar at 805.875.8124 for assistance.

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!
