Woman stopped before she had a chance to victimize locals.
A North Hollywood woman was arrested early Monday morning on drug and mail theft related charges after being stopped near Sierra Highway and Dolan Way.
Sharon Mozo, 29, was booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s station on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance and theft of United States mail. Deputies found a manufactured US Postal Service mailbox key and locking mechanism, burglary and pry tools, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and dozens of pieces of mail, believed to be stolen from residents in North Hollywood area, in the suspect's car.
Deputies did not find any mail from the Santa Clarita Valley area in the suspect's possession and may have caught her before she had an opportunity to perpetrate similar crimes in the area.
Mozo also faces potential misdemeanor charges of possession of narcotic paraphernalia, possession of a US Postal lock and possession of burglary tools. She is being held in lieu of more than $32,000 bail.
