‘One Thing Leads To Another:’ SCV Sheriff’s Arrest Two On Narcotics Charges

A deputy patrolling on The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch arrested two people on multiple narcotics charges Thursday morning. 

At around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, a deputy with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station was patrolling along The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch when they found a car with an expired registration.

“(The deputy) came across a vehicle in a parking lot that had expired registration as of 2019,” Shirley Miller, spokesperson for the station, wrote in an official post Saturday. “Checking department resources, the deputy found that the vehicle registration actually expired in 2018.”

A woman later got into the car and drove away, prompting the deputy to conduct a traffic stop on the driver for the vehicle code violation.

“Upon making contact with the driver, a 49-year-old female from Bakersfield, the deputy learned that she did not have a driver’s license,” Miller wrote. “The deputy found that the suspect was in possession of methamphetamine and several Xanax tablets.”

Prior to the stop, there was a man in a separate car in the parking lot that the deputy observed with the woman before she left the parking lot. 

“Contact by another patrol unit was made with the male adult sitting in the other vehicle,” Miller said. 

“It was found that the male, a 30-year-old from San Bernardino, was in possession of controlled substances for sale and narcotics paraphernalia,” Miller wrote.

The woman was arrested on misdemeanor charges of false vehicle registration and possession of controlled substances, while the man was arrested on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance for sales and misdemeanor charge of possession of narcotics paraphernalia, according to Miller.

Both were taken to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Jail for booking.
