There were four Part 1 Crimes in Zone 2.  

One residential burglary was reported on Cromwell Avenue in Val Verde.  The suspect entered the residence through an unlocked rear sliding door.  A laptop and PlayStation 3 were stolen. 

One commercial burglary was reported off of Castaic Road.  Five suspects from Los Angeles tried to make small purchases at several stores on Castaic Road using counterfeit $100 bills.  An alert store employee recognized the fake bill and notified the Sheriff station.  Responding deputies found several other stores in the area had been victimized by the same five suspects. Numerous counterfeit bills were recovered from inside the suspect vehicle.  All five were arrested and booked for multiple charges.     

There was one reported stolen vehicle in Castaic.  A Ford F-350 truck was stolen and recovered off of Hipshot Drive.  

A theft from a vehicle was reported in Castaic.  Personal items were taken from an unlocked and open vehicle.
