Newhall, Zone 6
Public Safety and Crime Prevention
Snapshot: 09/02/13 through 09/08/2013
Overall crimes reported in the Newhall area saw a slight increase during the week, but year to date reported crimes still remain lower than the previous year.
Between Saturday the 31st and Sunday the 1st a power saw and a power washer were stolen from a backyard storage shed in the Polynesian mobile home park, 23450 Newhall Ave (ref 12274).
During the early morning hours of Saturday, August 31st a red “Schwinn” bicycle was stolen from the garage of an apartment in the 21300 block of Alder Drive. The Victim had opened the garage earlier that evening to allow ventilation and forgot to close it when he went to bed (ref 12193). Unfortunately open and unattended garages can be tempting to opportunists. If it seems your neighbor has accidentally left his garage open, be a good neighbor and let them know or report it to Santa Clarita Sheriff’s station (661)255-1121 and we will check it out.
On Monday, September 2nd around 6:30pm, a fight and a related vandalism were reported in the 24200 block of Race Street. The incident is possibly gang related and is being investigated by Santa Clarita station COBRA Detectives (ref 12128).
On Thursday, September 5th around 5:00pm, a customer’s wallet was stolen from a business in the 24800 block of Orchard Village Road. The victim left her wallet and other personal belongings on a table while she used the restroom. Later when she returned home, she realized the wallet was missing (ref 12267). It is all of our responsibility to be vigilant with the security of our personal belongings. It only takes a second for an item to be taken while it is left unattended and often can take hours or days dealing with reporting and replacing stolen items.
