Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies detained two people at gunpoint in Canyon Country Thursday evening, during a stolen-vehicle investigation, according to law enforcement officials. 

The alleged theft occurred just shortly after 6 p.m. on Via Princessa, near May Way, Sgt. Erick Jepson confirmed. 

“Two people were detained,” he said, adding the investigation resulted from two deputies checking a license plate and learning the car had been stolen. 

No arrests had been made as of 7:20 p.m. as their investigation was ongoing, he said. 

The incident prompted a brief traffic block in the area of Via Princessa and Whites Canyon.
