A minor allegedly attempted to steal a woman’s purse at a Walmart parking lot when an off-duty police officer intervened on Sunday, law officials confirmed.

“He took her purse out of her shopping cart,” Lt. Byron Wainie with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station said.

The off-duty officer chased the suspect and detained him in the parking lot until officials arrived on scene at the Walmart on Carl Boyer Drive.

On Saturday, a different suspect also attempted to steal a purse from a victim at the same Walmart.

Officials are still on the lookout for that suspect that is described as a black male last seen wearing jeans and a black hooded sweatshirt.

    Poor decision by the off-duty copper when risk is factored in. Most probably think I am referring to the risk to his/her life, but no. I am referring to the risk of losing his/her job. Policing today is so different than it was 30 years ago, some change for the better, but most alleged police reform has made your cities a more dangerous place to live. Deputies/Officers intentionally disengage from pro-active police work as a means of career survival. The less you do, the less opportunities ivory tower executives have to hammer you. This is all a result of liberal policies, influence of politics in policing, and people like reformer McDonnell. So here are the facts ladies and gentlemen, Da’quarius and Shontell will continue to infiltrate the once peaceful and safe SVC, while the reformer keeps you safe by changing epaulets on the uniform shirt.

      Amazing how fast these false protectors call the police when they have a problem. Blue Lives Matter…..

      I remember moving to the SCV before it was the SCV….The Mustang Drive In, Saugus Speedway, Friday Night Football with just 3 highschools, Indian Dunes and you could leave your front door unlocked. The smell of onions, Rye Canyon had one building- Boskovich Farms had an ice House out in the middle of the field. It was a great place to raise our kids, not so much anymore.

        100% agree Kriss. About 15 years ago I had the opportunity to be at a planning meeting at city hall. At that time the population of SCV was 170k (does not include Stevenson Ranch or Castaic being they are not incorporated into the city) During the course of the meeting it was disclosed that the city had a valley developmental plan to increase home building until the population reached 500,000 people (add the two aforementioned cities to that total). Imagine the congestion and crime that comes with that population, not to mention a host of other problems inherent to a population that size e.g.: mass homeless encampments, freeway off-ramp and median beggars, etc.
