There were three vehicle burglaries that occurred in various areas of Valencia this past week during the early morning hours. The victims reported that their passenger window had been smashed by an unknown object. Items stolen were a cell phone and IPOD which were located in the backseat or center console area of the vehicles.
Once again I urge everyone to please take careful steps to not become a victim. If you are out and about in the evening, 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. Do not place items underneath vehicle seats or cover them with clothing apparel.
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. There were multiple arrests made this past week by proactive Santa Clarita Deputies assigned to the Valencia area. Arrests included battery, spousal assault, petty theft, and shoplifting from local businesses.
