Craigslisting Leads To Arrest Of Saugus Car Burglary Suspects

craigslistoneDetectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Burglary and Fraud team managed to track down two juveniles believed to be responsible for at least 16 vehicle burglaries in the Saugus area of Santa Clarita over the past two months.

The detectives got the break they needed after they located some of the stolen property on the Craigslist resale website, Sheriff’s Sgt. Jim Anderson said.

Detectives placed a call indicating they wanted to purchase some of the items. One of the unsuspecting subjects met deputies at a local shopping center. Team members moved in to take him into custody after confirming he was in possession of some of the stolen items. That subject, male age 16, of Saugus was booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station on felony burglary charges. He was later released to his parents on a citation pending future court proceedings.
