Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies arrested a 24-year-old man and his 20-year-old companion, both from Saugus, on multiple charges early Friday.
Here’s the story as reported on the station’s Facebook page:
If deputies are not responding to calls for service, they are patrolling around neighborhoods and businesses, watching for any signs of suspicious activity.
Take for instance, last Friday. Deputies were patrolling parking lots of businesses in the early morning hours near The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch. They pulled into a parking lot of a closed business and noticed a U-Haul truck driving around.
Since it was 2 a.m., deputies made contact with the driver. The 24-year-old man, identified as Justin Williams of Saugus, was found to be on parole for felony burglary.
Deputies also discovered Williams was driving on a suspended license, and found various items inside the vehicle, including items commonly associated with robbery.
The deputies arrested Williams and his passenger, Deanna Newman, age 20, of Saugus, for various charges including alteration of an imitation firearm, possession of narcotics paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license, possession of burglary tools and suspicion of robbery.
They were both booked at the SCV Sheriff’s Station. Williams’ parole officer was notified of the parole violation.
