Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station established a containment perimeter on the 30000 block of Hamlet Way in Castaic after a suspected home burglary Saturday.
“We suspect it might be a burglary and we’re waiting on additional resources” as deputies on the scene begin to set up along a perimeter,” said Sgt. Brian Shreves with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “No one is in custody just yet.”
The call came in shortly before 8 p.m., Shreves said. Canine units with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department were sent into the residence where deputies believe the burglary had occurred, Shreves said.
“We have a dog in there looking for a potential suspect,” said Shreves, who added that personnel on scene had heard noise coming from inside the home, but that it could have been contributed to the resident’s cat or a ceiling fan. “They sent they also sent the dog into the attic … but they haven’t found anything.”
By 10:30 p.m., the canine unit did not find the suspect. As a result, Shreves indicated that the containment and search of the immediate area was over.
“Once it’s clear, deputies will go inside with the residence and find out what was taken (by the suspect),” Shreves said.
No additional information regarding the suspect or allegations were available, Shreves said. As of 11 a.m. on Sunday, no new details on the search were immediately available, according to SCV Sheriff’s officials.
