Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to reports of a stolen vehicle in Canyon Country Sunday evening.

The incident occurred on the 19200 block of Soledad Canyon Road, near the Walgreens in Canyon Country Plaza.

“Deputies were detaining (the occupants of) a stolen vehicle at gunpoint,” said Sgt. Mike Konecny.

The black Honda Civic, which was reported stolen out of Palmdale, allegedly was full of stolen property, including stolen mail and a loaded firearm, according to Konecny.

All three of the vehicle’s occupants — two men and a woman — were arrested at the scene.

Both passengers were arrested for allegedly being in possession of stolen property, forgery, identity theft and mail theft, while the male driver was arrested with those charges as well as for the allegedly stolen vehicle, being in possession of a loaded firearm and for being on parole.
