Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Crime Prevention Unit
[LASD] – This week period, Zone 5 (Valencia) had twenty Part-1 crimes reported. The criminal incidents included residential/vehicle burglaries, grand theft auto and a few petty thefts/shoplifting from local businesses.
One residential burglary occurred on the 23500 block of Via Barra during an unknown period of time. Items stolen were a guitar and a Bose Radio sound dock. The victim believes items were stolen by a family acquaintance. A second residential burglary occurred on the 24000 block of Back Bay Court during the day between the hours of 6:00 am- 5:30pm. Items stolen were a lap top, camera, and jewelry from various rooms in the house. The victim believes items may have been stolen by the maid service. Both cases are being investigated by Santa Clarita Detectives.
There was only one vehicle burglary this week and it occurred at the 26400 block of Rockwell Canyon Road. The hours of theft occurred during the day while the vehicle was parked in a parking lot. The victim left her purse in plain view on the floor board of the vehicle with the windows slightly rolled down. I urge everyone to please secure all personal belongings (purses, book bags, lap tops, etc.) and do not leave items unattended or visible in your vehicles. Remember to secure your vehicles by rolling up all windows, locking all doors and when possible try to park in well-lit and highly visible areas.
There were another two reports of grand theft of Honda vehicles. A Honda Civic was stolen from 24300 block of Town Center Drive during the day while the vehicle was parked in a parking structure. Another Honda Civic was stolen from the 28500 block of Avocado Place also during the day time while the vehicle was parked on a residential street. Santa Clarita Deputies are diligently patrolling all areas of Valencia regarding this increase of theft. Please help us by reporting all suspicious activity and call the Sheriff’s Station at 661-255-1121.
There were eight arrests made by proactive Santa Clarita Deputies assigned to the Valencia area last week. The criminal charges included narcotic charges, driving under the influence of a controlled substance, grand theft, and shoplifting from local businesses.
