Detectives at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station have learned in recent weeks of a woman going door to door in residential neighborhoods throughout our valley. The woman says her name is Sirena Sanchez and says she is collecting donations for Children’s Hospital in order to purchase books.
One victim reported that “Sirena Sanchez” spoke with a speech impediment. When a cash donation was received, “Sirena Sanchez” issued a receipt. Upon examination, it was discovered the business name on the receipt does not appear to be linked with a legitimate charitable organization.
Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Detectives began an investigation into the legitimacy of this female collecting money on behalf of Children’s Hospital and the organization she claimed to work for. Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the female shown in the attached surveillance photo. This female is a person of interest in this investigation and detectives would like to locate her for questioning.
If you recognize the female in the photo or have any further information that can assist in this investigation, please contact Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Detective Sgt. J. Anderson at 661-255-1121 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
