There were two Part 1 Crimes in Zone 2 this past week.  A Castaic resident reported her purse stolen off of the front seat of her open unattended vehicle while parked in the KinderCare parking lot off of Hasley Canyon. 

The Pilot truck Stop reported that a black male in his 20’s, entered their store and grabbed a Red Bull and Hot Cheetos then ran out the back door without paying.     

Please remember to close your garage doors, and never leave valuables in plain view in your vehicle.  Minimize your risk and avoid being the victim of a crime of opportunity.  If you see any suspicious activity, call the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at (661) 255-1121 or
9-1-1 in an emergency.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Zone 2 (Castaic or Val Verde), please feel free to email or call me directly.
