A call regarding a suspicious vehicle parked in a shopping center in Castaic led to the arrest of two men and two women from Bakersfield on multiple criminal charges Tuesday afternoon.
Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to the 26800 block of The Old Road to check out a suspicious vehicle report they received.
The occupants of the vehicle, two men and two women in their 20s and 30s, were found to be in possession of at least a dozen credit cards that were not in their names, mail that didn’t belong to them, methamphetamine and burglary tools commonly used to break into group mailboxes.
Deputies arrested all four adults on a range of charges including vandalism, theft, narcotics and conspiracy.
The suspects were transported to the SCV Sheriff’s Station and booked.
