2018 - Big Oaks Lodge in Bouquet Canyon burns down [video]
Big Oaks Lodge


Two men and one woman from the San Fernando Valley were arrested Thursday morning- the trio is accused of stealing mail and packages from multiple mailboxes in the Santa Clarita Valley.

A caller alerted Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at around 4:29 a.m. on Thursday of two people acting suspiciously on the 24100 block of Newhall Ranch Road. The citizen reported that the individuals were wearing hoodies and seen removing mail from a community mailbox and putting it in their SUV, a Chevy Tahoe.

Deputies found a vehicle matching the description provided by the citizen and followed it westbound on Magic Mountain Parkway. As the SUV approached the I-5 onramp, deputies conducted a traffic stop. The entire cabin of the vehicle was filled with mail and packages from various addresses in the Santa Clarita Valley. The mail was stacked so high, that the final suspect was not found for several minutes as he laid on the second row floorboard, completely hidden by the mail.

Deputies arrested the driver, 22-year-old Kieontay Williams and the two passengers, 27-year-old Breeona Scott and 23-year-old Timothy Brown for Grand Theft and Mail Theft. All three had residence addresses in the San Fernando Valley. The driver, 22-year-old Kieontay Williams, was also found to be on active probation for Identity Theft.

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station detectives are jointly investigating this case along with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. If you think that you are a victim of mail theft, you can report suspected mail losses to Postal Inspectors by calling 877-876-2455 or at postalinspectors.uspis.gov.

    I WOULD GIVE THEM 25 YEARS IN PRISON TO SHOW THEM NEVER TO TAKE MAIL THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO THEM . NOW I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO MY MAIL.

  6. They should have their hands chopped off.

  11. Im sure some of my mail is in that pile!

  12. If only they would not get probation. Unfortunately, they will be out in days and back at it.

  13. We have had the community report to the board mail theft, sucks!!!

  14. Kim Mangers Kim Mangers says:

    Melissa Null maybe this is where it all went…

  15. Anne says:

    Are they returning the stolen mails to its rightful owners?

  16. Cal Nordhagen says:

    So now the USPS can redeliver all that mail? Or does it require some type of special handling? Needed as evidence to convict the scofflaws? Several pieces of junk mail may be sufficient. Deliver the rest.

  17. Glad they finally caught them. It’s been happening for at least 6 months.

  18. Thank you for the brave witness coming forward and calling 911 to alert the Sheriffs. Law enforcement can’t do it alone and need our help too by being great wits.
