Crime Suppression Nighttime Operation in Santa Clarita Nets 12 Arrests

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station conducted a crime suppression operation Thursday night in parts of Newhall, Canyon Country, and Saugus. The operation was designed to address crime issues in specific parts of the city. The team of deputies and sergeants contacted numerous members of the community and engaged them in conversation regarding their neighborhood concerns. Business owners were also contacted and had their concerns addressed. 

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station Sergeant Jeffrey Martin said that deputies assured the citizens that the station was responding to their concerns and will continue to take a proactive approach to fighting crime. Martin commented, "The citizens were appreciative of the station's response, and encouraged by the high visibility the team brought to the operation." 

As a result of the operation, 12 persons were arrested (1 female, 11 males, all adults) for charges ranging from drug possession and sales to weapons charges.  One individual was arrested with a large quantity of methamphetamine with the intent to sell. Another suspect wanted for a burglary was located and arrested.
