Here’s a summary of incidents that took place in the last week in Santa Clarita (If your zone isn’t listed, keep checking back for updates):
Canyon Country East
This past week in Zone 7, the following Part-1 Crimes occurred: (1) Aggravated Assault, (1) Residential Burglary, (1) Attempt Residential Burglary, (1) Commercial Burglary, (1) Attempt Grand Theft Auto, (1) Grand Theft, (1) Petty Theft and (3) Incidents of Shoplifting.
An aggravated assault occurred on Tuesday, 05/07/13, in the wash area behind Santa Clara Street. A transient sleeping in an encampment assaulted three other transients with a knife after an argument. The suspect was arrested without incident.
There was an attempt residential burglary in the 17300 block of Mount Stephen Avenue between Sunday, 05/05/13, to Friday, 05/10/13. The victim noticed fresh pry marks on both her screen door and sliding glass door. It was determined that entry was never made into the residence. Please remember to lock all doors and windows when leaving for the day. I know that with the high temperatures it is tempting to leave a window open to relieve the temperature when you get home. This leaves a point of entry for criminals looking to burglarize your home.
There was a commercial burglary in the 19900 block of Soledad Canyon Road around midnight, Wednesday, 05/08/13. Deputies responded to the scene and contacted a witness who stated he observed two males exiting the business and leave in a vehicle. Responding deputies located the vehicle a short distance away. Miscellaneous burglary tools and stolen property were located in the suspect’s vehicle. Both males were arrested without incident.
Deputies working in the Canyon Country West area made several arrests last week. Arrests included charges of narcotics, grand theft, burglary, and assault.
This week Newhall (Zone 6) had eight part one crimes reported. Two shoplifting incidents, three petty thefts, one assault, one commercial burglary, and one stolen vehicle.
On Monday, 05/06/13 at approximately 2:00pm a shoplifting incident was reported from the “CVS” located on the 24800 block of Orchard Village Road. 30 packages of assorted women’s makeup were reportedly stolen (ref -06270).
A petty theft was reported from the “Kentucky Fried Chicken” located on the 23300 block of Lyons Avenue. This incident reportedly occurred on Monday, 05/06/13 at 11:45am. The victim left her purse inside the location. When the victim returned to recover her purse, she discovered that items had been stolen from inside the purse (ref -06273).
A 2006 Mercedes E350 was reported stolen from the 23500 block of Canerwell Street (ref -06456).
An 18 year old male was arrested for allegedly stealing “Jack Daniels” from Vons located on the 24100 block of Lyons Avenue. The man was booked at Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station (ref -06530).
An assault was reported on Sunday, 05/05/13 at approximately 12:30am. This incident reportedly took place on the 23900 block of Newhall Avenue. The victim reported that he was beaten up by two males. The suspects (both black males between 20 and 25 years old) fled the area. The investigation is on-going (ref -06304).
Remember: It’s hot outside. Hot Oven, Hot Car. It’s the Same Thing…Leaving an animal in a hot car is a crime.
“Everyone should remember to take special care of themselves, children, the elderly, and their pets. When temperatures are high, prolonged sun exposure may cause dehydration, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke,” said Jonathan E. Fielding, MD, MPH, Director of Public Health and Health Officer. “Never leave children, elderly people, or pets unattended in vehicles, even with the windows ‘cracked’ or open, as temperatures inside can quickly rise to life-threatening levels.”
There were only two reported Part-1 crimes over the past week in Saugus. There was a robbery in the 26500 block of Bouquet Canyon Road on Thursday, 05/09/2013. While eating at a local dining establishment the victim was approached by an acquaintance who demanded money. The suspect then grabbed the victim’s backpack and ran outside.
Once outside, the victim was assaulted by three other suspects while trying to obtain his property back. Detectives are following up on this case.
There was a residential burglary in the 19700 block of Paige Street on Tuesday, 05/07/13. Police were called after an alert resident saw two males taking a safe from his neighbor’s house. Deputies responded and located the vehicle fleeing from the scene. After a vehicle pursuit the suspects fled on foot near the Westfield Mall. A containment was established and all three suspects were taken into custody without incident. Again, between the work of alert residents and dedicated Sheriff personnel we are sending a,
“Not in Santa Clarita!” message to criminals.
