Here’s more from the station’s social media:
“Friday Update: There’s been a lot going on, but be assured that our crime suppression operations and our deputies’ vigilance in proactive patrol have not wavered, despite brush fires and triple-digit heat.
“On Thursday, deputies made three arrests for DUI; three arrests on domestic violence-related charges; one arrest for auto theft; two arrests for assault with a deadly weapon and at least six arrests on narcotics charges.
“In one of the narcotics arrests, deputies were conducting a patrol check of the Park and Ride near the 14 Fwy/ Newhall Ave when they made contact with two men in a car. Through their field investigation, the deputies learned that the Palmdale men were involved with marijuana sales. The suspects had a large amount of marijuana, U.S. Currency and scales in the vehicle.
