Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff Station deputies set up a containment Saturday afternoon after deputies conducted an enforcement stop and found two men with possession of a firearm, according to law enforcement officials.
A deputy patrolling the 24700 block of Pico Canyon Road in Stevenson Ranch observed a vehicle with expired registration with two male adult occupants in a parking lot, according to Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
Sgt. Dimitry Barkon said deputies arrested one male passenger. The male driver fled on foot, which prompted deputies to set up a containment from the vicinity of Pico Canyon Road and Chiquella Lane at approximately 4:16 p.m.
“The deputy recovered narcotics and drug paraphernalia,” Arriaga said. “The passenger was arrested on weapons and narcotics charges.”
Barkon added deputies continued to search for the second man who fled. At approximately 5:10 p.m., the containment was still active.
The containment was broken down at approximately 5:39 p.m., and deputies could not locate the male driver who fled and remains outstanding at this time, according to Arriaga.
No further information was provided, and the investigation is ongoing.
