Sheriff’s Station stages saturation patrol

Deputies assigned to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Crime Prevention Unit, along with deputies from the Crime Impact Team, arrested two individuals and cited another following a Thursday morning saturation patrol operation on Santa Clarita’s paseos, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Station.

The operation took place Thursday morning with deputies using “patrol vehicles, deputies on bicycles, and deputies using T3 patrol vehicles on the paseos throughout the city of Santa Clarita” according to the news release.

“The T3 vehicles the city bought really help us navigate the paseos, bike paths, and residential neighborhoods,” said Deputy Josh Dubin in the news release. “And the fact that they’re essentially silent until we turn the siren and forward-facing red lights means we can usually catch any criminals in the act, as we can see them before they see us.”

A 22-year-old female was arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen property while another, 25-year-old female was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance: methamphetamine.

A third adult female was cited at approximately 10:45 a.m. for possessing an open alcohol container, according to the news release.

Deputies and teams from the Sheriff’s Station are used to patrol the paseos and surrounding areas at random and undisclosed times throughout the year, according to the news release.

“These types of operations and others just like it will continue throughout the year to ensure our residents have the safest possible paseo access to parks, entertainment venues and shopping centers throughout the city of Santa Clarita,” the news release reads. “Criminals who choose to break the law and are caught will be arrested.”

Is "paseo" what they call the bike trails on the West Side? Are they different? I like riding the South Fork, with the equestrians. The trails stop at Soledad and Lost Canyon. The city goes on for several more miles. Not bitter, but I get the feeling the squeaky wheel principle may be a factor. Speed freaks must be fun to sneak up on.

What they should do is get the portly sized sheriff's to patrol on bicycles!

Occasionally, I've seen them on their segways on the paseos, but it's been at night. I think it's a good idea, there should be some type of presence once in a while to keep the troublemakers at bay.

3 females arrested? War on women.

Egbert, what if one of those troublemakers had a hockey stick?

Then we'd pump them with ten bullets, bob. What a silly question.

If the hockey stick was raised then it is high sticking. 100 years in the pine penalty box.

Why are women loitering in the walkways? Looking for Johns?
