Stevenson Ranch / Westridge, Zone 3
Public Safety and Crime Prevention Info
Snapshot 09/23/2013 to 09/29/2013
My name is Deputy Josh Dubin, one of the public information officers here at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. I am also the former CPU zone leader for the Newhall (Zone 6) area. Although there has not been a zone leader assigned to Stevenson Ranch / Westridge (Zone 3) for a number of months, recently new private funding was secured as I spoke about last week. This funding is still not sufficient to have a full time zone 3 leader, however, I was able to review the part one crimes reported for zone 3 during the above dates. I prepared this report to keep local area residents information of current public safety and crime prevention information and trends.
There were nine reported part-one crimes between the above dates. Here are some details regarding the crimes:
A petty theft from an unlocked vehicle was reported to have occurred in the middle of the night on Sunday night, September 22nd 2013. This crime occurred on the 25300 block of The Old Road. A car stereo, Carrie Underwood music CD, and a pair of sunglasses were stolen (ref – 13070).
A vehicle was reported stolen on Monday, September 23rd 2013, at approximately 12:05am. This theft took place on the 24800 block of Pico Canyon Road at a gas station.

A new scam to be aware of is phony insurance solicitors claiming to be with the government. The callers will claim to be helping sign people up for the new government insurance plans under “Obama Care”. Be sure to research the legitimate government website at http://www.HealthCare.gov If you need information about the plans, use the contacts provided by the government for the health agencies you would like information from.
