Routine Traffic Stop In Newhall Leads To Felony Arrests

Two men were arrested on a slew of charges in Newhall during a routine traffic stop last week.

Early Friday morning, at approximately 1 a.m., SAT (Special Assignment Team) deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station conducted a traffic stop in Newhall on Placerita Canyon Road off the 14 freeway, according to SCV Station officials. 

The two men, Ricardo Alonzo, 30, and Claudio Valencia, 37, were found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia, shaved keys and a loaded unserialized firearm, according to Natalie Arriage, spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

A photo posted by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Twitter account shows an array of weapons and illegal substances, including a firearm with two magazines and a taser.

The pair were booked and continue to remain in custody for felon possession of a firearm including several more charges.

  1. Another good get by the SAT Team. Keep doing the great work to clean up this town. There deserves to be at least one law and order city in CA.
