Police Blotter

| Gazette, Police Blotter | April 26, 2012

As usual, there were some unusual police citations issued in the past week. A 21-year-old college student from Canyon Country was arrested for possession of a knife at a college/university. There is no word which college was the scene of the suspected crime. Other students were booked last week for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and having records with prior arrests. Suspects included a 24-year-old Santa Clarita resident and a 23-year-old man from Canyon Country. Residents from outside of Santa Clarita accounted for many of the DUI citations, and some of the drivers had fairly high profile occupations. On Saturday and Sunday, the sheriff’s department booked a lawyer from Chatsworth, a field engineer from Bakersfield, an investigator from Palmdale and an accountant from Lancaster. Other DUIs included a 51-year-old Newhall man and a 20-year-old laborer from Castaic. A Stevenson Ranch couple were both charged with corporal injury of a spouse/cohabitant Monday. He is an unemployed 25-year-old and she is a 23-year-old homemaker. It was a rough weekend for the food service industry. A chef, two cooks and a dishwasher were all arrested on Saturday and Sunday. The chef, a 29-year-old Valencia man, and a 24-year-old cook from Sylmar were cited for possession of a narcotic/controlled substance. The other cook, a 46-year-old Newhall man, received a DUI. The dishwasher was a 21-year-old man from Canyon Country, arrested for obstruction/resisting an executive officer. Some of last week’s suspects held jobs that made it easier to explain their charges. A 41-year-old warehouser and a 30-year-old man who works as a mover were both charged with burglary, and an unemployed Saugus man was charged with grand theft.
