Two ar­rested in sep­a­rate in­ci­dents in­volv­ing am­mu­ni­tion

The Signal - - NEWS -

Deputies in­ves­ti­gat­ing two sep­a­rate in­ci­dents Fri­day ended up ar­rest­ing a man in each case on sus­pi­cion of il­le­gally pos­sess­ing am­mu­ni­tion.

About 7:30 p.m. Fri­day, deputies pa­trolling on Avenida Rotella in Ne­whall spot­ted two men stand­ing out­side of a ve­hi­cle, said Shirley Miller, spokes­woman for the Santa Clarita Val­ley Sher­iff’s Sta­tion.

One of the men was hold­ing a can of beer, she said.

“Deputies stopped to make con­tact and dis­cov­ered that one of the males was on pro­ba­tion for weapons vi­o­la­tions,” she said. “In the ve­hi­cle, deputies found am­mu­ni­tion and a Depart­ment of Cor­rec­tions badge that did not be­long to the men.”

A 41-year-old tat­too artist who lives in Ne­whall and who has prior felony con­vic­tions, was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of pos­sess­ing am­mu­ni­tion, a felony, and on sus­pi­cion of re­ceiv­ing stolen prop­erty, a mis­de­meanor.

In a sep­a­rate and un­re­lated in­ci­dent that same day, SCV Sher­iff’s Sta­tion Sum­mer Crime En­force­ment Team deputies made con­tact with a man at a gas sta­tion park­ing lot on the 27500 block of Magic Moun­tain Park­way Fri­day af­ter­noon, near the I-5 free­way.

“The driver, a Pa­coima man in his 20s, was driv­ing on a sus­pended li­cense,” Miller wrote in a SCV Sher­iff’s Face­book post.

“Deputies learned that the man was on ac­tive pro­ba­tion for rob­bery, and they found him to be in pos­ses­sion of metham­phetamine and bur­glary tools,” she said.
