Two Robbery Suspects In Custody After Unrelated Thefts

Deputies arrested two robbery suspects over the weekend who were involved in separate thefts.

 On Friday, deputies responded to the 26400 block of McBean Parkway in Valencia regarding a robbery, said Deputy Natalie Arriaga, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station

 “Upon arrival, deputies learned the male was observed grabbing merchandise from the display shelves and exited without attempting to pay,” Arriaga said. “When a loss prevention officer attempted to detain the suspect, the suspect punched the victim several times.”

 The victim was eventually able to detain the suspect with the assistance of a second loss prevention officer, Arriaga said. 

A search of the suspect resulted in the recovery of a baggie of methamphetamine and the robber. 

Deputies took custody of the suspect and arrested him for robbery and possession of a controlled substance. 

Second Robbery

 On Saturday, deputies responded to the 25500 block of The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch regarding a robbery in progress, Arriaga said. 

 “Upon arrival, deputies learned a male entered the location, grabbed merchandise from the display shelf and exited without attempting to pay,” Arriaga said.

 When an employee confronted the suspect regarding the stolen merchandise, the male pushed the victim, causing her to fall to the ground, according to Sheriff’s officials.

“The victim sustained minor injuries,” Arriaga said. “A male, later positively identified as the suspect, was detained on scene.” 

Ellis Morgan, 32, from Newhall, was arrested for the Valencia robbery.

Christopher Ramos, 26, from Lancaster was arrested in connection with the Stevenson Ranch robbery.

Both suspects were booked into the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station and remain in custody as of Tuesday morning, according to Arriaga.

  1. Well since Gascon didn’t get recalled, keep expecting more of this behavior. Next, it will be unlawful to have Loss Prevention Officers. These guys are probably out after the ink dried on this article and will do it again tomorrow. No penalties.

  2. This article is a bit confusing. To the author, please proofread and edit before you publish.

  3. The Liberals are loving this until it happens to their somewhat loved ones & more importantly, their Mamon businesses and then they’ll blame innocent societies for the scumbags chosen lifestyles! The race hustling greedy demonic lawyers will sue the owners, security, bystanders, etc.! Thanks Gas-Con & Liberals for freedom gone berserk!
