Two people, a 43-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman who share a home address in Canyon Country, were arrested on suspicion of forgery exceeding $950 on March 8 at approximately 6:30 p.m., according to Natalie Arriaga, spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
Arriaga said the pair matched the description, and were later positively identified, of suspects who attempted to cash a fraudulent U.S. Savings Bond for $10,000.
“Deputies confirmed the male and female attempted to cash a fraudulent U.S. Savings Bond for $10,000,” wrote Arriaga in a prepared statement. “They were arrested and booked for forgery, and later released on their own recognizance.”
The man and the woman were initially held in lieu of $20,000 bail before being released.
