Update, 1:41 p.m. Oct. 11, 2008
Less then 24 hours after the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station released surveillance photos of suspects in a burglary, detectives received a call from an anonymous tipster who positively identified the primary suspect in the case as Jonathan William Maier, 18, of Canyon Country, according to the station's public information office.

Detectives were also able to identify the other two individuals pictured in the initial post and through further investigation determined the two were not involved with the burglary of Homeros Gift Shop at 23413 Lyons Avenue in Newhall.

After the suspect was identified, detectives obtained information about a second man, Kevin Anthony Voytish, 20, of Valencia, who they seek for questioning in the case.

Detectives also determined that Maier is the primary suspect in a second crime, a robbery on the same date in the parking lot of the Vallarta Market at 23449 Lyons Avenue in Newhall. A robber allegedly assaulted a woman and stole her purse.

Detectives released photos of Maier and Voytish, and ask anyone with information about either suspect's whereabouts or either crime to call (661) 255-1121.

Original story, 3:45 p.m. Oct. 8, 2008:
Sheriff's detectives are looking for three suspects, two males and one female, wanted in a Newhall burglary, a sheriff's official said.

The suspects allegedly broke into Homeros Gift Shop at 23413 Lyons Avenue in Newhall Sept. 9, said Sgt. Darren Harris of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's station.

The suspects are accused of distracting the store clerk and sending a crony around back to unlock the service door, Harris said. The suspects allegedly returned after store hours and burglarized the business, he said.

The suspects are described as two male Hispanics between the ages of 17 and 21. One of the male suspects stands about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds, with a shaved head. The other male suspects stands about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 165 pounds, with short-cropped hair.

The female suspect is described a 19-year-old Hispanic, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing about 150 pounds, with brown hair.

Detectives ask anyone with information to call (661) 255-1121.
