A male convicted felon and a woman were both arrested on suspicion of multiple felony charges on Tuesday in Castaic, according to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials.  

According to Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station, school resource deputies were patrolling the 31500 block of Castaic Road at approximately 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, conducting a crime suppression operation. 

Deputies observed a man and a woman seated in a parked vehicle with the door ajar, according to Arriaga. Deputies proceeded with a welfare check for the vehicle’s occupants and noticed they both appeared distraught.  

“As they (deputies) reached the vehicle, a male occupant immediately exited and tossed a baggie of methamphetamine onto the top of the vehicle,” wrote Arriaga in an email to The Signal.  

The man and woman were both detained, pending further investigation. 

A search of the 31-year-old woman resulted in deputies locating a loaded firearm in her waistband, according to Arriaga. A search of the vehicle resulted in the recovery of numerous documents, not matching the names of either party. 

The 29-year-old man was identified as a convicted felon and was arrested on suspicion of felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance and carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle. 

The woman was arrested on suspicion of identity theft and carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle.
