Citizen tip helps to arrest attempted murder suspect

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department reports this story with thankfulness to the public and their hand in apprehending an attempted murder suspect –

“The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Detective Bureau received a tip on April 27, 2020, from a citizen regarding the whereabouts of suspect Noah Becerra, a 20-year-old adult male sought by detectives for attempted murder charges.

In June of 2019, detectives had reached out for the public’s assistance in locating suspect Becerra in connection with a shooting that occurred in January 2018 where the suspect allegedly shot a male adult victim in the parking lot of a Canyon Country fast food restaurant. The victim survived his injuries.

The tip received last Monday indicated that suspect Becerra was in the San Jose, California area. COBRA detectives corresponded with detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Major Crimes Bureau (MCB) Task Force regarding the new leads on the case.

On Wednesday, April 29, 2020, two days after the tip was received, LASD MCB detectives located and arrested attempted murder suspect Noah Becerra in San Jose. Becerra was transported and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail, where he is being held on a charge of attempted murder with bail set at $2.1 million. Suspect Becerra will be transferred to the Los Angeles County Jail at a future date, where he will be arraigned at San Fernando Superior Court.
