A 29-year old man and a 36-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of retail theft with the intent to sell in Canyon Country after law enforcement personnel with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station discovered a vehicle Thursday filled with stolen items including steak, shrimp and alcohol, according to station officials.  

SCV Sheriff’s Station deputies were patrolling the Canyon Country area when they saw a vehicle with an expired registration, wrote Deputy Kabrina Borbon, a spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station, in an email.  

Deputies made contact with the two occupants, whom Borbon described as “nervous,” per the deputies’ observations. The two individuals provided false identification information, Borbon wrote.  

After further observation, deputies who conducted the traffic stop noticed the two male occupants were carrying multiple items with anti-theft tags in the vehicle, she wrote.
