Santa Clarita Valley detectives hope the public can help them identify a man they want to question in connection with two burglaries, one of them a “hot prowl” case, in the hills above Placerita Canyon this week.

On Wednesday night, a resident reported, he went to bed leaving his back door open but screen door closed and locked.

When he awoke, he discovered the screen door cut open and his iPad, laptop and cellphone missing, along with his wife’s purse and other items, Deputy Josh Dubin said in a news release Friday.

The next night another burglary occurred in the same area of the 21600 block of Parvin Drive, although it was not a “hot prowl” case, so named because the burglar enters a home while the residents are present.

Following the Wednesday night burglary, a stolen credit card was used at a Wal-Mart, Dubin said. A surveillance camera captured the image of a man whom detectives want to question in the case, he said.

The man was described as a male, white or Hispanic, about 18 to 28 years old.

Anyone who knows who the man is or how to find him is asked to call LA Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS, text the letters TIPLA plus the information to CRIMES (274637), log onto the website or call Detective Marino at 661-255-1121. Marino can be emailed at, as well.
