SANTA CLARITA – Although one of the two incidents reported by the Santa Clarita Valley Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department occurred over a month ago, they believe that both are related and are hoping that someone will recognize their surveillance photos and identify them.
On August 15, the AT&T store on the 26400 block of Bouquet Canyon Road reported that five black males aged 18 – 22 entered the store and stole cell phones and tablets by ripping the devices from the security cables to which they were attached. They were in and out within a minute.
On September 7, another AT&T store on the 24900 block of Pico Canyon Road experienced a similar fate. This time three black males aged 18 – 20 and again stole cell phones and tablets. Authorities believe these robberies are related and possibly committed by the same suspects.
The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff welcomes any phone calls concerning these cases to 861-255-1121. You can also remain anonymous and call 1-800-222-TIPS.
