Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies placed Hasley Canyon Road under containment shortly after 1 p.m. on Sunday afternoon as they searched for a vehicle theft suspect who fled from officers.
The containment was set up near Hasley Canyon Road and Commerce Center Drive and between Cambridge Avenue and Wakefield Road. The containment was broken down at approximately 2:15 p.m. after deputies were unable to locate the suspect.
“There are not many details right now, but what we do know is that there was a suspect who is wanted for vehicle theft that ran from deputies and we’re trying to locate him,” Sgt. Mike Konecny said Sunday.
A helicopter was also deployed to help with the search and announced a description of the suspect.
The suspect is a white male in his 30s with short, black hair. He has a goatee and a tattoo on his neck and was last seen wearing a black and grey flannel, blue jeans and brown boots. According to Lt. Andrew Dahring, the suspect’s identity is known.
“We know who this guy is and the deputies recognized him,” Dahring said. “He’s a wanted suspect for a stolen vehicle from within the last week and a half to two weeks.”
