Two out-of-town women described as transients by local sheriff’s deputies were arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of burglary for allegedly breaking into storage lockers and stealing “collectibles” found inside them.
About 8 a.m., deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station were dispatched to a Canyon Country storage facility near Via Princessa.
“An employee from the storage facility called to report activity,” said Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
The employee gave deputies a description of a vehicle seen leaving the facility, she said.
“Deputies spotted a vehicle matching that description, followed the vehicle and made a traffic stop,” Miller said, noting the vehicle was located near Sierra Highway and Newhall Avenue.
They followed the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop.
The two women — one from Simi Valley, the other from Van Nuys — were taken into custody on burglary charges and transported to the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
Stolen property, which included collectibles, according to Miller, was allegedly recovered in the suspects’ vehicle.
