BREAKING NEWS: ID Theft Suspect Targeted By Santa Clarita Deputies

A Saturday crime spree left three women victimized of thousands of dollars after a suspect targeting white, blond women in grocery stores stole their wallets, credit card information and IDs, a Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station official said Thursday. 

One of the victims had brown hair, and due to the fact that she didn’t resemble the victim closely enough, the victim was able to prevent further theft. 

“They went to a gas station, numerous banks and numerous jewelry stores,” said Deputy Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“Three white women were preyed upon from various grocery stores in the Santa Clarita area,” Dubin said, adding that all of the victims had a close resemblance to the female suspect.  

Deputies are searching for one suspect and a person of interest who was a passenger in the SUV. The passenger was a man who was with the woman filling up a vehicle at local gas stations.

“We need the public’s help in finding out who this woman is, who the man is, and where there car is,” he said. There’s a potential suspect that was in a black sedan seen at the gas station with the suspects.

The car that they were seen driving, according to video surveillance captured at local gas stations, was a silver Cadillac SUV for the woman and a male passenger. The third person of interest was in a black sedan that may be a Honda or a BMW — the model of the car is difficult to make out on the security-camera footage, Dubin said.

“So these wallets were stolen, and we have some surveillance photos — they went into banks using the IDs and withdrew thousands of  dollars,” he said.

Soon after the report surfaced, sheriff’s deputies from the Thousand Oaks station reported that a similar crime took place Jan. 10. The incidents are believed to be related, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.

Sheriff’s Station deputies are asking anyone with information in regards to these incidents to 
contact Detective Jones at 661-255-1121 or at J3Jones@lasd.org.
