1860 - Colonel Thomas F. Mitchell arrives in Soledad Canyon [story]
T.F. Mitchell


On Saturday, deputies assigned to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Crime Prevention Unit, along with deputies from the Crime Impact Team and station COBRA detectives, conducted a late-night saturation patrol operation using patrol vehicles, deputies on bicycles, and deputies on foot patrol.  The deputies deployed on the paseos, trails, and streets throughout the city of Santa Clarita.  The operation began at 9 p.m. and went into the early morning hours.

The purpose of Friday night’s operation was to address some community concerns and to send a clear message to anyone considering using the paseo systems for unlawful purposes such as loitering, alcohol consumption, drug use, or to commit acts of vandalism.  Deputies were also enforcing the curfew ordinance which applies to those 17 years old and younger and makes it unlawful for any minor to remain upon any public street, public building, place of amusement, eating place, vacant lot, or unsupervised place between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

In order to address the above concerns, deputies assigned to the CPU, CIT, and COBRA team conducted this saturation operation focusing on area parks and other locations where juveniles are likely to congregate.

The results of Friday night’s operation were as follows:

One 15-year-old was cited for curfew violation, possession of marijuana, and minor in possession of a lighter at the Santa Clarita Transit Center.

One 16-year-old was cited for a curfew violation at the Santa Clarita Transit Center.

One 17-year-old was cited for curfew violation near Grovepark Drive, Saugus.

One adult was cited near Grovepark Drive, Saugus for an open alcoholic beverage container.

Two adults were cited for being in the park after hours at Bridgeport Park.

One 15-year-old and one 16-year-old were cited for curfew violation in the parking lot of Pavilions Market (27071 McBean Parkway).

Two adults were cited for marijuana possession near 23401 Soledad Canyon Road.

Two 17-year-olds were cited for curfew violation near 27520 Sierra Highway.

One adult was arrested for possession of methamphetamine near 27520 Sierra Highway.

Our deputies and special teams, both in uniform and undercover, are commonly utilized to patrol the paseos and surrounding terrain at undisclosed and random times throughout the year to ensure the safety and serenity of Santa Clarita’s more than 20 miles of picturesque trails, designed for bicycle commuting and recreational use.

Current and similar operations will continue throughout the year to ensure our residents have the safest possible paseo access to parks, entertainment venues, and shopping centers throughout the city of Santa Clarita.  Criminals who choose to break the law and are caught will be arrested.

  1. Yea! Do it! Clean it up we don’t want to end up like the places we all fled from!

  2. Mikee Hart Mikee Hart says:

    Yeah… I’m sure glad these “criminals” are off the streets! Especially that delinquent waiting for the bus. Who does he think he is?! Having a job at 17 that runs late hours & taking the bus home?! Blasphemy, I tell you! Hooligans like that need to be locked in doors & kept away from standard society! Go Team Go!!! Keep our streets safe!

    • troy says:

      Exactly, this is the worst thing ive ever heard of. I feel ashamed that this town finds the need to focus on criminalizing children, rather than accepting the fact that we have a very peaceful town. I hate that they hunt down the innocent. These cops make monsters outa these kids. The only good thing here is the meth head

  3. Manny Silva Manny Silva says:

    MAN. .they will be out next week…relax

  4. Tony Simone Tony Simone says:

    Curfew tickets ? I feel safer already knowing those kids parents have to pay 500 dollars phew

  5. Tony Simone Tony Simone says:

    Only good bust I saw was the tweaker focus on that ya turkeys

  6. 9 curfew violations, an adult with a beer, and one smoking a joint, a minor with a LIGHTER! Yaaaaayyyy tax dollars!! Meanwhile, if you’re car gets broken into cops will no longer show up on the scene. You now have to report the incident online.

  7. Ok they did a great job spending your money

  8. SCV sheriff’s are corrupt!!!!

  9. I think it is funny that people are so intent on being negative, that they will find any opportunity to spread their inner hatred to the world via Facebook. Even in a story like this which shows that the Sheriff is doing what they are paid to do. People were robbed at gun point in the Paseo trails and an effort was made to show force and ensure people feel safe when using them. It is hilarious, thank you for making the news feed entertaining with your inability to say something positive.

    • More LAPD doing what they are paid to do…

    • We do not have LAPD in SCV. #justsaying

    • Well then, they must all be saints…

    • Mikee Hart Mikee Hart says:

      More SCV Sheriffs doing EXACTLY what they are paid to do… Don’t be so naive, Michael. Know what REALLY goes on in your city.

    • Mikee Hart Mikee Hart says:

      P.s. There were multiple gun shots outside my residence 2 nights ago. ZERO response from Sheriffs. Probably too busy handing out curfew tickets. ..

    • The 2 issues are not related, My neighbor is part of the Sheriff and people forget that less than 1% may do something corrupt and people ignorantly judge the over 99% who show up to earn a living. If people do not like the SCV law enforcement they should move to Sylmar, Northridge, Porter Ranch, or Simi Valley. And to the people who do not live here and still complain about this town, that is just unfortunate that they can’t move on. Obviously this town must not be that bad if you live in another part of the state and still keep up on this small town news. Comparing corrupt cops to Cops who are actually try to make our community safe is like telling you child they cannot go to Disneyland because a Disney television star was caught driving drunk. The 2 are not related, It is a simple issue of using critical thinking skills.

    • Mikee Hart Mikee Hart says:

      Read my above statement. 100% of the Sheriffs did not show to multiple people calling about gun shots in my neighborhood. Also, I would brush up on my math if I were you, Mr. Wizard. 7 sheriffs were involved in jail beatings. We are far from having 700 sheriffs.

      I agree with you on this matter Michael. I would rather have the sheriff focus on this matter rather than the previous matter we disagreed on.

      Besides your biased opinion based on having a sheriff for a neighbor, you need to further educate yourself.

    • Brushing up on Math is not the issue, Ignorance to the Los Angeles Sheriff department is the issue. Our Sheriff is part of the LASD which employs over 18,000 employees. If you read my comment you would see that I said less than 1% is corrupt and over 99% are not corrupt. Those are estimates not exact numbers. If you are going to randomly pick my post to attack when I have not attacked you in anyway, Using facts to debate me would be the best way to show me that I may be wrong. I do not take the time to attack individuals that I do not know. I figure most people are decent human beings and I appreciate their opinions are different than mine. I find it laughable that I am even taking the time to respond to this as I never called you out. I simply stated in my original comment that I find it hilarious that people find the negative in any story. I am sure you will reply and in a way I know my comment will in a way pull your strings and force you to reply. I am not here to fight you or call you names, as I am not in high school. But if you feel that you need to insult me to make your point go ahead. :)

    • I’m fairly educated, both by my schooling and by due diligence on current events.
      I have done my due diligence on the corruption in the sheriff department and I have the ability to use my critical thinking skills to see that because 7 people out 18,000 employees does not make a corrupt department. even 100 corrupt people out of over 18,000 does not make a corrupt department.

    • I’ve been reading these comments because I have nothing better to do. You say to others they need to use facts but can you please show me the statistic on the ratio of corrupt and non corrupt police men because I think you may have gotten your “fact” wrong… thanks and I no longer live in SCV but I know that it has an awful heroine problem and people are mad that cops are wasting their time getting adults trying to have a drink or being at the park at night or kids with pot in trouble rather then getting the true bad guys . Seems silly to me.

    • Well Haley Johnson I personally and unfortunately do not have the time that you have. If you want to show me the Stats that show the exact percentage more power to you. I used an estimate based on the story posted to my comment by another user. All are estimated numbers. Do you know why that story was relevant? Do you know why the Sheriff did that? Due Diligence goes along way before attacking someone on FB. http://scvnews.com/2014/06/17/arrests-made-in-canyon-country-bike-path-robberies/ if you follow the link you will see exactly why today’s article was written. You do not live here? If I didn;t live here I would move on. #justsaying
      Personally my life does not revolve around places I do not live or do not have business interest in.

    • And they call them LAPD … which would be funny if not for the fact that a lot of people in SCV think Eric Garcetti is our mayor!

    • I’m sorry you think me responding to your comment was an attack. I thought this was a friendly debate? No? Also I commented on this because I have friends and family who live in santa clarita and saw this post come up and decided to comment on it #justsaying #thanks #godblessyou.

    • Sorry if I took your comment in the wrong light. I am simply stating to people that if they disagree with me I welcome the facts to show differently. As stated in my other post I respect your opinion and anyone else who disagrees with me. And if the facts show I am wrong I will evaluate the facts and adjust my view based on facts. You and I may see things different, but I am sure that you would rather have the sheriff making the Paseo system safer rather than the random SMOG check points that pop up around this town. This particular post by SCVTV is about the task force to make sure that if a person is in the Paseo at night riding home from work, they do not need to be worried about being robbed at gun point.

  10. Paul Mahone Paul Mahone says:

    Welp those tickets should just about pay to fix that bumble bee sculpture that got hit on Bouquet. I know I feel a lot safer now…

  11. HAHA seeing posts like this makes me so happy I don’t live in Santa Clarita anymore.

  12. Thank you sheriff! but giving a curfew ticket to a 17 years old waiting at the bus station to go home? C’om! some kids need to work and they got out from work late.

  13. Liz Wells Liz Wells says:

    I feel so much safer knowing that those juveniles paying for their bus fare are being adequately punished…. Wow. #wasteoftime

  14. ^^^ we need to question those in power. That’s part of our democracy. It’s also part of checks and balances. To tell someone to move if they dont like something is asinine. If everyone moved the police wouldn’t have jobs. The citizens have a right to complain.

    Thank you LA County Sheriff! We desperately need a visible presence of law enforcement on the Paseos and trails. As a female bicyclist the trails have been increasingly scary and many of us will not ride alone on the trails anymore. We are grateful!!!! From the Lady Bicyclists in Santa Clarita

    My neighbor’s house got robbed and it took seven hours for an officer to show up and make a report. But hey they have important things to handle like minors with lighters.

    Meanwhile in the wash… stupid!

  20. Honestly, I’ve had family in the police force, and I know the only reason why they act like dicks is because of ignorant, stupid people. It’s illegal to be intoxicated on the streets, and it’s illegal to be out past 10 if you’re a minor. Cops don’t have the patience anymore, and I don’t blame them. Dealing with morons 24-7. And if you live in canyon country, cops are busting meth heads left and right. A simple thank you would be nice, I don’t want meth heads on the street.
    See the big picture, people.

  22. Paul Mahone Paul Mahone says:

    Michael Erickson these sweeps are not a response to the incident that occurred in the link that you posted. They do this every year when the schools let out and the kids get bored and then write a nice little warm and fuzzy puff piece about it. People are responding to it the way they see fit. Why this is so upsetting to you is beyond me. I respect the law but I absolutely have to laugh at an article like this.

  23. Lori says:

    I have to say as a parent of teens in SCV if a 17 yr old is at the transit and just got out of work its one thing unfortunately most of the time this is not the case! So if a parent has to pay for a ticket because they are not enforcing the curfew law then so be it! The laws are there to protect everyone. SCV has a HUGE problem with every drug right now and parents need to be more educated on what their teens are doing if they are hanging at the mall all day there is a problem the mall is NOT a safe place for kids to hang out with friends anymore it is infested with drugs!

  24. Douglas Arms Douglas Arms says:

    Are the paseos closed at 10pm? Just wondering how these cops justify harassing these people without probable cause? Just being out after 10pm doesn’t give these cops the right to stop, question, and search you. It’s a violation of the 4th Amendment. Period! And for them to go to the transit bus station and start ID’ing people is again a violation of these peoples constitutional rights. If they are not being detained on suspicion of a specific crime the cops have no probable cause to stop them. They can’t just start running your ID and lets see if we hit the lottery. But it appears here in SCV these Nazi tactics are accepted and supported.

  25. Awesome town isn’t awesome. Kinda overcrowded.

  26. msc545 says:

    Ridiculous. Busting a kid for having a lighter ? Curfew violations? Marijuana ? What a sad joke.

    Perhaps these cops could do something useful, like handing out tickets to the idiots in pickup trucks that drive 20 miles an hour over the speed limit and tailgate anyone that gets in their way.

  27. More like oppression patrol. Or lets call it what it really is, harassment and revenue generation.

  28. Paul Mahone Paul Mahone says:

    Douglas Arms a minor out after curfew is probable cause.

  29. Paul Mahone Paul Mahone says:

    I would much rather have the sheriffs addressing the rampant heroine problem in this valley. Michael maybe you would care to throw us some cold hard facts about how many teen overdoses there has been in the last few years and about all of the arrests being made against the traffickers who bring it here and sell it. But again hey at least that kid doesn’t have a lighter.

  30. Some of you bashers OBVIOUSLY don’t live near the paseos. I’ll take the cops busting even the guy with the beer over repeatedly finding out another neighbor has had a break-in. Just wonder how you’d feel if you called the cops and the DIDN’T come.

  31. Ian Parr Ian Parr says:

    Taxpayers money hard at work here!

    No but really where do we live nazi germany? Last time I recall we have something called the 4th amendment? The sheriffs don’t have the right to demand for your I.D. Or search you for unless detained for probable cause. This is a joke

  32. I love reading all these knowing on a first hand basis there is a lot of other stuff that they turn their heads to that is a LOT worse than this , so to all “bashing” the “bashers” you really have no idea. It sickens me, but is quite comical at the same time how naive you people are. I would love to prove that the “bashers” (you call them) are wrong, but there is so much more truth in their words than yours. It is horrific at what they let slide and they know what is going on.

  33. I…for one…am grateful for the surveillance…we ve had so many disturbing headlines this year…I know of one life that might have been saved…had he been discovered in time to get help…so thank you to law enforcement…!

  34. Like the idea but they really didn’t find any criminals did they???

  35. This doesn’t solve the problem, this is akin to a police state feature. It’s not a crime to walk down the street. And I shouldn’t be subject to aggression simply for walking down the street, even if it is 3am. This solves NOTHING.

    Listen to all the pathetic apologists for power in the comments below, so eager to explain away these clear violations of basic human rights, like being able to walk down the damn street. Now we will pull over anyone willy-nilly?

    And as for the drugs – this drug war needs to stop. EVen if it is meth – that person who suffers drug abuse should see a specialist or a doctor, or his community – NOT locked up in a cage.

    People need to carry pepper spray and not walk alone at night. I don’t care if you’re a badass, if you’re not Bruce Lee 12 teenage boys will kill you.

    Nothing against the police officers necessarily though. I walked last night to a friend’s house at 2am and I simply waved at the police officers in their car and they gave me the nod. Probably could’ve been worse.

  36. Douglas Arms Douglas Arms says:

    Hey Paul Mahone you would first have to violate the kids rights to determine if they are in fact a minor. A violation of the 4th amendment.

  37. I’d like the Sheriffs to catch the punks on the Paseos selling drugs.

    Awesometown wa da tah

  39. Irvin Burton Irvin Burton says:

    You know, the whole “park closing at 9pm” thing sucks for guys like me who practice martial arts at night cuz of school and work. I’ve been stopped several times, but I’m gonna continue to train.

  40. Jake Berend Jake Berend says:

    Scott Russell Scott De La Torre good thing we weren’t out there on our adventures lol.

  41. Not bashing, just fact…

  42. I’m so greatful for the Sherriffs Dept working hard to keep all of us safe here in Santa Clarita. I want to feel free to be on the bike path / and or paseos without the fear of getting shot, robbed or raped. JUST SAY “NO” TO SANTA CLARITA turning into a ******** ! Get these SCUM outta here.

  43. Marissa says:

    I was raised and lived in SCV most of my life. Those paseos were my romping grounds in the day. I currently live in NYC in a neighborhood that has had in one month 6 shootings, 3 in broad daylight. This is activity that I had not experienced since moving here. So when I started reading this article, I thought “sweeps” what a great idea if NYPD did that here until I started reading the arrests charges listed. I literally laughed out loud. If they made that sweep here these people would just be sent on their way. I was expecting arrests of dealers (not pot), Santaria chicken sacrificers in the parks, sexual assaulters and muggers and gang bangers with warrants. The NYPD would be chillin all night in my hood with just having to contend most of what you just listed in this article…lol! But still a great idea if they did that here. No room in jails for cerfew violators…lol!

  44. Nadiya says:

    Last week after 2 hours of listening to a dirt bike “screaming” up and down our residential street at a very high pitched, nerve wracking sound a neighbor stepped out into the street and ask him to stop. Within moments 2 cars full of other young men were parked in the middle of the street yelling at this neighbor, fireman and father of 3 in threatening and profanities that we could hear them from 6 & 7 houses away up and down the street.
    About 4 or 5 of us came out into our yards and called SCVSD. I was asked by the woman on the phone at the SCVSD, “What do you want me to do about it? Do you know how busy we are here? It’s Friday night!” ,,,,and she hang up. A neighbor 2 houses up told them he heard gunshots and they showed up 2 hours later after everyone (6 or 7) had left the area. Soooo glad no one was hurt. Soooo sad they got away with it. The young man is still periodically racing his dirt bike up and down the street and causing stress and disturbing the peace to no end. Periodic patrols would be welcome here.

  45. haha! OMGosh! … curfew violators, really??!! lol! I have lived in SCV most of my life but now live in NYC! In the last month there have been 6 shootings, 3 in broad daylight. Its something I had not experienced since moving here in my n’hood. The concept of a sweep is brilliant but it must have been a slow night in the SCV burbs! NYPD should do that here where I live now because its getting ridiculous here! Otherwise, I think I will be moving back to SCV amongst the curfew and open container violators. All of which I’ve been guilty of when I was underage!!! I turned out okay ;)

  46. M. OAKLEY says:

    For those of you that think that the police are wasting taxpayer dollars on arresting juveniles, you should really become more aware juvenile crime. Stop by the Valencia Probation Office and I’ll be happy to share information on what juveniles in our city are up to. These arrests are prevention. Juveniles in this area loiter in places like this to use and sell drugs. Some rob citizens to pay for their habit and create unsafe environments for everyone. Curfews are enforced for a reason, not to waste time and some of the “excuses” juveniles provide officers for being out late are often untrue.

  47. Eric White Eric White says:

    You should look for people stealing cars and breaking into houses instead of this. Have to reach that quota though right?

  48. Actually those guys were attacking and robbing people on the bike paths

  49. But I totally agree that they are usually popping people for petty little things

  50. Josh R Us Josh R Us says:

    Probably juggalos

  51. Haha I bet they did a great job

  52. Wendy Roller Wendy Roller says:

    Why do there always have to be sarcastic, ignorant remarks when the Sherriffs or any other law enforcement agency do these special operations. These are a small part of a bigger picture… This is law enforcement, if you don’t like the law spend your obvious extra amount of free time changing the laws you think are ridiculous. In the meantime be thankful you don’t live in Syria or Iraq.
