Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Crime Prevention Unit Zone 5-Valencia had sixteen Part-1 Crimes reported during the past week.


The criminal incidents included a residential burglary, grand theft, vehicle burglaries and shoplifting from local businesses.

A residential burglary occurred on the 28000 block of Liana Lane between the hours of 3:00 pm and 3:30 pm.

The suspect entered the residence through an unlocked sliding glass door and stole two bottles of alcohol from the kitchen area.

Within minutes of a crime broadcast, the suspect was apprehended and booked at the Santa Clarita Station for the indicated crime.

A grand theft of a lap top computer occurred on the 24500 block of Town Center Drive between the hours of 3:30 pm and 6:00 pm. The suspect entered a hotel and stole the lap top from a desk inside the one of the offices.

As he fled on foot, Deputies arrived and put out a containment of the location.

The suspect, a parolee, was arrested shortly after and booked at the station without incident.

Two vehicle burglaries occurred in various areas of Valencia during the week between the hours of 3:30 pm and 6:00 pm.

One occurred on the 24500 block of Town Center Drive.

The victim parked her vehicle on the first floor of a parking structure and left her back pack containing an IPhone and IPad on the backseat.

A second burglary occurred on the 24400 block of Valencia Boulevard.

The victim left her purse containing credit cards and an IPod on the rear floor board.

Entry and exit made to both vehicles was done by smashing the front passenger window with an unknown object.

Items stolen were visible from the outside of both vehicles.

With the holiday shopping approaching, I urge everyone to please take careful steps to not become a victim.

If you are shopping at night, try and park your vehicles in well-lit areas. Be mindful of your surroundings.

Take personal belongings with you when you exit your vehicle or secure items in locked trunks.

Remember to roll up all windows and lock doors before walking away from your vehicle.

Do not leave valuables such as purses, wallets or cell phones unattended in public areas like shopping carts, benches or counters. If you see any suspicious activity, please call the Sheriff’s Station immediately at 661-255-1121.

There were ten arrests made this past week by proactive Santa Clarita Deputies assigned to the Valencia area.

Arrests included residential burglary, grand theft, embezzlement, driving while under the influence of alcohol, and numerous shoplifting from local businesses.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Valencia (Zone 5), please feel free to email me at

It is my goal to keep the residents of Valencia informed and educated on current crime trends and concerns.

Remember, by continuing to work together we will send a “Not in Santa Clarita” message.
