Valencia, Zone 5
Public Safety and Crime Prevention Information
Snapshot for 02/10/2014 through 02/16/2014
Zone 5-Valencia had eleven Part-1 Crimes reported during the week indicated. The criminal incidents included burglaries, and numerous petty thefts from various areas.
Two burglaries occurred on the same day at different gym locations. One occurred at LA Fitness and the other at Gold’s Gym, both between the hours of 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Both victims reported placing their personal belongings in the men’s locker room area while using the gym. When they returned, their locks had been cut or tampered with. Items stolen were wallets, keys, and other personal belongings.
If you are using lockers in a gym, make sure to use durable locks. Combo style locks tend to be the ones easily tampered with. Make sure you lock your lockers before exiting the locker room. If you see something suspicious, report it immediately.
Continue to keep theft down. Take careful steps to not become a victim. Be mindful of your surroundings. Do not leave personal items unattended in public areas, such as restaurants, shopping carts or counter tops of businesses.
DO NOT LEAVE ITEMS VISIBLE IN YOUR VEHICLE! Take all personal belongings with you when you exit your vehicle or secure items in locked trunks. Do not leave items underneath vehicle seats or cover them with clothing apparel or blankets. Thieves know this technique. Remember to roll up all windows and lock doors before walking away from your vehicle.
If you see any suspicious activity, please call the Sheriff’s Station immediately at 661-255-1121. There were multiple arrests made this past week by proactive Santa Clarita Deputies assigned to the Valencia area. Arrests included, drunk in public, possession of narcotics, and shoplifting from local businesses.

Remember, by continuing to work together we will send a “Not in Santa Clarita” message.
