Detectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station are investigating a case involving a suspect who is believed to be using a popular online dating website to lure in women, gain their trust and then allegedly steal their property. Detectives are aware of a number of women who have fallen victim to the scam and believe there may be others who have not yet come forward. In an effort to locate unsuspecting victims or those who have been hesitant to report the crimes, the suspect’s photograph and information are being released to the public.

The suspect in the case, Jeffrey Elvington, a 39 year-old male and resident of Saugus, was arrested February 14th, 2013 on felony burglary charges. At the time of that arrest, detectives asked for public assistance in locating additional victims who may have had contact with Mr. Elvington. The February case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Detectives have learned of additional alleged crimes. In one instance Mr. Elvington allegedly stole a woman’s credit card information and used it to purchase an item. Detectives arrested Mr. Elvington a second time on Tuesday, June 4,  on charges related to separate incidents of grand theft and burglary after additional crimes were reported by at least one victim. The suspect was later released pending further investigation and filing consideration.

The suspect has allegedly contacted many women over the past two years and appears to be continuing his attempts to gain the trust of unsuspecting victims, despite the recent charges and arrests. Most of the women have been from the Santa Clarita Valley area. In one case he apparently implied he was a personal chef for the stars. In another case he reportedly said he was working for the government and the military in the special forces. It is alleged that the suspect makes up elaborate professions and stories to make himself more desirable to the women before ultimately scamming them out of money, credit, and personal property. The allegations and reports in both the February 2013 and the latest arrest have similar characteristics and motive.

Detectives are, once again, asking for public assistance in identifying additional victims. If you have had contact with Jeffrey Elvington under similar circumstances please contact Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, Detective Elsee, at 661-255-1121 (ref -07612).
