The Los Angeles County District Attorney has charged three suspects with multiple felonies related to a series of recent robberies in the SCV, according to officials.
The story from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s social media follows:
“Last week, deputies arrested suspects in Castaic after they were sought in connection to a crime reported earlier in the evening at the Westfield Valencia mall – an adult male acquaintance was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot.
“Through an extensive investigation, SCV Sheriff’s Station detectives were able to link the suspects to two other robberies that were previously reported in the SCV. The victim(s) in all of the cases were acquaintances of the suspects.
“In a Saugus robbery that occurred on Feb. 16, the suspects took iPhones and other personal items from two victims.
“On March 2, three suspects armed with a handgun and hammer robbed four victims in Newhall of their personal belongings.
“On Thursday, March 8, the District Attorney’s office filed seven felonies against suspect Reymundo Gutierrez-Mora, age 20: five counts of robbery, one count attempted robbery and one count assault with a deadly weapon.
“Suspect James Vega, 22, faces four felonies: two counts robbery, one count attempted robbery and one count assault with a deadly weapon.
“On Saturday, a third suspect wanted for robbery, Hugo Gutierrez-Mora, 21, turned himself in at the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
“All of the suspects were from the SCV.
“We are glad these individuals are off the street and can no longer victimize others.”
