Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies took a woman suspected of stealing a car into custody at gunpoint on Sunday morning.

Sheriff’s deputies encountered an allegedly stolen vehicle along the 5 freeway and were able to pull that vehicle over on The Old Road, according to officials.

“At approximately 11:20 a.m., deputies encountered a stolen vehicle and conducted a felony traffic stop on that stolen vehicle,” said Trina Schrader, public information officer with the Sheriff’s Information Bureau. “A female adult was detained and arrested.”
