A Canyon Country resident described as a Hispanic man was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of attempted burglary, according to Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials.
According to Lt. Jack Jordan, a spokesman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station, a “burglary now” call was received at 6:48 a.m. The call detailed a man running on the roof of a resident’s home on the 18000 block of Oakmoor Street.
Deputies arrived on the scene at approximately 7 a.m. and arrested the suspect on suspicion of attempted burglary.
It was later learned that the suspect also lived on this street and was known by the community to be a drug addict, according to Jordan.
At the time of his arrest, the suspect appeared to be under the influence of drugs, according to Jordan.
