Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Special Assignment Team deputies arrested three people in Canyon Country last week on drug charges, with one arrestee also the subject of an outstanding no-bail arrest warrant, according to a post on the station’s official social media.
Here’s the story:
We’ll do whatever it takes to keep SCV safe!
Our Special Assignment Team has been keeping busy with conducting directed patrol in Newhall and Canyon Country — especially in areas where residents have expressed concerns over possible gang activity.
They conducted several traffic stops and pedestrian stops over the last few days, making notes of who they encountered. Arrests were made for possession of narcotics paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine.
On Wednesday, while patrolling Canyon Country near Soledad Canyon Road and Crossglade Avenue, deputies made contact with a known gang member, an adult male Hispanic, 34, and arrested him on a $50,000 narcotic sales warrant.
On Friday, SAT team deputies located a parolee at large when they conducted a traffic stop and the driver, Jonathan Blankenship, age 34, had a No Bail Parole violation for car theft. He was also found to be in possession of heroin.
His passenger, a female white adult, age 31, was in possession of methamphetamine, a scale, baggies, and U.S. currency. They were both arrested, transported and booked at the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
This week, SAT team deputies will keep on conducting directed patrol in Newhall and Canyon Country, making their presence known.
