Sheriff’s nab suspect in Canyon Country.
The second suspect has been arrested in connection with the robbery of the Stevenson Ranch Fifty-Six Store which occurred on Monday, January 21st, 2008, at 5:50 p.m.
In that, two suspects entered the Fifty-Six store and forced the clerk in the back room, before stealing clothing, electronics, and cash.
The first suspect was apprehended after an LAPD Detective read the suspect description, and realized that he had just taken a man into custody for other charges with that description.
Through further investigation and follow-up, Detective Welch of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff Station's Robbery and Assault Team was able to identify the second suspect. Detectives determined the suspect was reportedly living in the 18000 block of Annes Circle, Unincorporated Los Angeles Country – Canyon Country.
Information regarding the suspect was passed on to patrol units and last night deputies patrolling in the area spotted the suspect driving near Jakes Way and Sandy Drive, Unincorporated Los Angeles Country – Canyon Country. The deputies conducted a traffic stop and the suspect was taken into custody without incident. A search of the suspect's residence reportedly revealed additional items directly connected to the Fifty-Six Store robbery.
The suspect, 20 year old Deandre Myles, was booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station on a felony Robbery charge. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail pending future court proceedings.
