The following crimes were reported in Zone 2, Castaic/Val Verde. 

A robbery occurred in Val Verde off of San Martinez Road.  A male Hispanic in his 30’s entered the local liquor store and pointed a silver handgun at the clerk demanding money.  The suspect took an unknown amount of U.S. currency from the register and fled on foot.  The clerk described the suspect as 508’ weighing 185 pounds and believes the suspect was a gang member.        

A commercial burglary was reported from 27000 block Saddle Ridge Way in Castaic.  Three separate storage bins were broken into.  The victim was unsure what was stolen at the time of the report.  A witness reported seeing a black 2013 Chevy 1500 4 door pickup truck parked nearby.  A male black wearing a backpack was seen climbing the fence to the location just prior to the incident. 

A burglary was reported from the 30000 block of Arlington Road in Val Verde.  Suspects cut a hole in the wall of the building and removed the window to gain entry to the kitchen.  An ice machine was stolen.

A residential burglary was reported from the 29000 block of Muledeer Lane.  A locked shed in the rear yard was broken into and several bags containing camping gear were taken.  All the items except a WWII “gas mask” were recovered on the side hill of the neighbor’s house and returned to their owner.

A theft from an unlocked vehicle was reported off of Glacier Place.  Passports in the victim’s names were reported stolen.       

A grand theft was reported from the 31000 block of Castaic Road.  A check for $999.99 was cashed using an unauthorized access code.  The victim reported the same thefts have occurred at several other truck stops throughout California.
