The release Wednesday of a video surveillance image depicting a suspect wanted in connection with the theft of ammunition from a local gun club has produced tips from the public that are now being pursued by detectives, a deputy said.

“We’re getting a couple calls,” Deputy Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station said Thursday.

“Detectives are now in the process of following up on them,” he said.

At about 6:50 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, an unknown man kicked in a door at the Oak Tree Gun Club on Coltrane Avenue in Newhall, according to deputies.

“The club was closed for business at the time of the incident,” Dubin said. “Once the male suspect kicked in a door he stole a rifle case, a bottle of water and approximately $1,800 worth of ammunition.”

Items stolen from the gun club included: 2,000 .556-caliber bullets; 250 30-caliber American Eagle bullets; 500 .45 caliber bullets; 500 9-millimeter bullets; a $79 rifle case and one bottle of water, valued at $1, Dubin said.

“Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station detectives immediately began following leads and have now released surveillance video and still photos taken from the location in hopes of identifying the suspect involved in this incident,” he said.

If anyone recognizes the male in these photos or has any further information that can assist detectives in this investigation, they are asked to contact Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Detective Harrold at 661-255-1121 or at
