The Signal - - NEWS -

A home­less woman who al­legedly broke into an apart­ment to shower and wash her clothes was ar­rested Tues­day on sus­pi­cion of bur­glary, a felony.

Kather­ine Gar­cia, 24, was ar­rested Tues­day morn­ing, shortly after 9:30 a.m., by deputies of the Santa Clarita Val­ley Sher­iff’s Sta­tion.

“Deputies were con­duct­ing a pa­trol check of apart­ments in Canyon County Tues­day morn­ing when they were alerted by the com­plex’s man­age­ment about a tran­sient that was seen ex­it­ing one of their va­cant apart­ments on the 27300 block of Evi Lane,” Shirley Miller, spokes­woman for the SCV Sher­iff’s Sta­tion, told The Sig­nal.

“Deputies were able to lo­cate the sus­pect in the nearby area,” she said.

“The sus­pect told deputies that she had went in the apart­ment to take a shower and wash clothes.”

Gar­cia was also ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of pro­vid­ing deputies with false iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, “as she iden­ti­fied her­self by a dif­fer­ent name to the deputies,” Miller said.

Gar­cia was taken to the SCV Sher­iff’s Sta­tion where she was booked and held with­out bail.
