This past week in Zone 8 (East), the following Part-1 Crimes occurred:

The following crimes are currently being investigated by Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station detectives:

A residential burglary occurred near the 17700 block of Maplehurst Pl., Canyon Country. The suspect forced entry into her mother’s (victim’s), house and was observed by family members stealing numerous items. After fleeing the suspect discarded the stolen items a short distance from the location.

A petty theft occurred near 18100 block of American Beauty Dr., Canyon Country. The victim, who is a taxi cab driver, drove the suspect to a destination in Victorville. Upon arrival at the location, the suspect ran from the taxi cab and failed to pay for the fare.

A petty theft occurred at a business near the 19300 block of Golden Valley Rd., Canyon Country. The suspect was observed by a loss prevention agent selecting merchandise from the store shelf and exiting the location without making any attempt to pay for it.

A petty theft occurred near American Beauty Dr. / Sierra Hwy., Canyon Country. The victim’s laptop computer was stolen from his unlocked vehicle.

A petty theft occurred at a business near the 19300 block of Golden Valley Rd., Canyon Country. The suspect was observed by a loss prevention agent concealing an electronic device amongst store clothing he was holding. The suspect then entered the dressing room with the clothing that concealed the electronic item, exited the dressing room a short time later empty handed, and exited the store. Responding deputies detained the suspect outside the location and discovered the electronic item concealed on his person.

A robbery occurred at a business near the 19300 block of Golden Valley Rd., Canyon Country. Loss prevention officers attempted to detain two suspects, one of which selected an item from the electronics department and returned it, receiving a gift card in exchange. The suspect who returned the store item became in involved in a physical altercation with both loss prevention officers as they attempted to exit the location. The suspects were arrested and booked for the indicated charges.

 

**The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station would like to remind residents that all fireworks (including those fireworks classified as “Safe and Sane”) are illegal within the city of Santa Clarita and unincorporated communities**

 

The penalties for using illegal fireworks include fines of:

– $2,500 for a first offense

-$5,000 for a second offense

– $10,000 for a third offense

 

Section 9.60.030 SCMC states the following: “Except as otherwise provided, it is unlawful for any person to handle, give away, sell, offer for sale, solicit the sale of, manufacture, possess, purchase, use, ignite, explode, fire, or otherwise discharge any fireworks within the city of Santa Clarita or to aid or abet any of the above with respect to fireworks as defined.”

Los Angeles County Fire Code Section 3301.1.3 states that it is illegal to store, manufacture, sell, use, or handle ALL FORMS of fireworks in any unincorporated area of Los Angeles County. The penalties for possession or use of fireworks can range from a fine up to $1000, to confinement in a county jail for up to one year.

As a reminder, many fireworks violations are classified as felonies.

Please keep in mind this is an extremely busy holiday for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station and Los Angeles County Fire Department. The Sheriff’s Department will have special teams deployed to combat the use of illegal fireworks.

 

Fireworks by the numbers

In 2011, fireworks caused an estimated 17,800 reported fires, including 1,200 total structure fires, 400 vehicle fires, and 16,300 outside and other fires. These fires resulted in an estimated 40 civilian injuries and $32 million in direct property damage.

In 2013, U.S. hospital emergency rooms treated an estimated 11,400 people for fireworks related injuries; 55% of 2013 emergency room fireworks-related injuries were to the extremities and 38% were to the head.

The risk of fireworks injury was highest for young people ages 0-4, followed by children 10-14.

On Independence Day in a typical year, far more U.S. fires are reported than on any other day, and fireworks account for two out of five of those fires, more than any other cause of fires.

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
