With the holiday shopping approaching, I urge everyone to please take careful steps to not become a victim. If you are shopping at night, try and park your vehicles in well-lit areas. Be mindful of your surroundings. Take personal belongings with you when you exit your vehicle or secure items in locked trunks.
Remember to roll up all windows and lock doors before walking away from your vehicle. Do not leave valuables such as purses, wallets or cell phones unattended in public areas like shopping carts, benches or counters. If you see any suspicious activity, please call the Sheriff’s Station immediately at 661-255-1121.
There were eight arrests made this past week by proactive Santa Clarita Deputies assigned to the Valencia area. Arrests included warrants, violations of probation, drunk in public, and numerous shoplifting from local businesses.
