Wanted Man Arrested In Stevenson Ranch After Being Found With Dozens Of Stolen Credit Cards

A felony identity theft suspect was taken into custody Monday afternoon after deputies reportedly located dozens of stolen credit cards among other illegal items in his possession during a Stevenson Ranch welfare check.

Around 3:45 p.m. Monday, a deputy patrolling a parking lot on the 25400 block of The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch observed a man slumped over the steering wheel of his vehicle, said Deputy Natalie Arstriaga, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“The deputy approached the vehicle to conduct a welfare check and observed various drug paraphernalia within reach of the male,” Arriaga said.

During a search of the vehicle, the deputy reportedly recovered 30 credit cards, 14 I.D.s and three checkbooks, all not named to the suspect. Additionally, a baggie of methamphetamine was also allegedly located, according to Arriaga.

“Further inquiry revealed the suspect was a previously convicted felon with multiple active outstanding warrants,” Arriaga said.

James Alcorn, 34, from San Francisco, was arrested for felony possession of personal identifying documents with priors, felony possession of checks with intent to defraud, felony possession of credit cards with intent to defraud and misdemeanor charges of being in possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, Arriaga added.

Alcorn was arrested and transported to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s jail with bail set at $0, according to arrest records.

  1. ALCORN had multiple Felony Warrants and was still not in jail, thanks Liberals and Gas-Con!

  2. Nice get to our Sheriff’s. Classic San Francisco resident. Are they running out of rich white libs up there to steal from that they have to come 400 miles south??? Yep and Gascon = no prosecution.

  3. Disgusting, excusing, down-playing, condoning, degrading cities from Seattle to LA, Chicago, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Kenosha, Philadelphia, NY, Detroit, etc. Liberals with no heart & soul for what their demonic behavior is doing to American! Their area code is 666!

About Louie Diaz

Louie was born and raised in Santa Clarita. At the age of two Louie lost his vision due to a brain tumor. However, Louie doesn't let blindness stop him from doing what ever it is he wants to accomplish. Growing up some of his favorite hobbies were wood working, fishing and riding bikes. Louie graduated from College of the Canyon in December of 2017, with a Broadcast Journalism degree. Growing up Louie has always wanted to be a fire fighter or a police officer, but because of his blindness Louie knew that wouldn't work. Louie has always loved listening to police and fire radio traffic, using a scanner, and he figured if he was going to listen to the scanner so much, he should do something with it.
