SANTA CLARITA - A man and a woman found sleeping in a stolen van were arrested at gunpoint in Stevenson Ranch on Tuesday, a sergeant said.

Deputies in more than half a dozen cruisers converged on the mini van about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday where it was parked between Walmart and Toys “R” Us in the shopping center between Interstate 5 and The Old Road, Sgt. Ron Price said.

The two inside the van were arrested at gunpoint and placed in the back of separate cruisers while deputies scrutinized the stolen vehicle.

The stores had nothing to do with the incident or the arrest, Price said.

“It seems they (suspects) stopped here to sleep, I guess because it’s shady,” he said.

“We have a confirmed stolen van out of South Los Angeles. Two people are under arrest for receiving stolen property and grand theft for the van.”

No shots were fired and no one was hurt, he said.

Deputies searched the van which was backed up against the north side of Walmart, examining items that included electronics, a duffle bag and sports equipment.
