A Valencia man suspected of violating a restraining order and stealing from a victim’s car was arrested in Saugus on Saturday.
“The victim (a female adult) has a restraining order against the suspect,” said Shirley Miller, a spokeswoman with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “The suspect allegedly repeatedly banged at the victim’s door and then went to the victim’s unlocked vehicle in a driveway and grabbed items from within.”
The suspect, Elias Morejon, 34, of Valencia was arrested on charges of grand theft (property), felony vandalism and for violation of a domestic violence restraining order, a misdemeanor, Miller said.
He was booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at 1:28 p.m.
He was held in lieu of $20,000 bail and released later that same day on bond.
