A Sheriff’s Station detective returning to the office from the nearby Valencia courthouse walked by two teenagers who were next to a glass wall by the entrance of the bureau’s headquarters.
One of the teenagers pulled out a marijuana pipe and was about to smoke when the 17-year-old boy was confronted by the detective, said Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Deputy Josh Dubin of the Crime Prevention Unit.
The teens were leaning against a glass wall of the Citrus Street building, officials said.
“A detective with our Detectives Bureau observed the two teenagers sitting down in front of our office on Citrus Street and proceed to pull out a marijuana pipe and they were about to begin smoking,” Dubin said. “Detectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station immediately confronted the teens.”
One of the teens had a pipe in his hands so he was cited for marijuana possession, which is an infraction. The other teenager was not cited.
The identities of the teens are not being released because they are under the age of 18, officials said.
The Detectives Bureau is about 100 yards from the Sheriff’s Station’s main building on the corner of Magic Mountain Parkway and Valencia Boulevard.
The headquarters of the Detectives Bureau is a separate building by the Sheriff’s Station, near the Bank of Santa Clarita.
