Deputies investigate robbery at Canyon Country Wells Fargo


A man carrying a bag of money was robbed Saturday morning while entering the Wells Fargo Bank Branch on Soledad Canyon Road near Whites Canyon Road in Canyon Country. 

“The male black suspect walked up to him, snatched it from him and took off,” said Lt. Jonathan Hoyt with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, noting the victim was carrying over $800 in cash. 

Hoyt said the suspect made his escape in either a black or dark blue Infinity SUV. 

“We had a license plate on the car but it’s not the right license plate,” said Lt. Hoyt. “It does not belong to car.” 

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station received the call at 10:50 a.m., according to Deputy Jose Gomez. The victim and a witness called the station.
