Last week, deputies arrested suspects in Castaic after they were sought in connection to a crime reported earlier in the evening at the Westfield Valencia mall - an adult male acquaintance was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot. Through an extensive investigation, SCV Sheriff’s detectives were able to link the suspects to two other robberies that were previously reported in SCV. The victim(s) in all of the cases were acquaintances of the suspects.
In a Saugus robbery that occurred on Feb. 16, the suspects took iPhones and other personal items from two victims. On Mar. 2, three suspects armed with a handgun and hammer robbed four victims in Newhall of their personal belongings.
Last Thursday, March 8, 2018, the District Attorney’s office filed 7 felonies; 5 counts of robbery, 1 count attempted robbery and 1 count assault with a deadly weapon against suspect Reymundo Guiterrez-Mora, 20. Suspect James Vega, 22, faces 4 felonies; 2 counts robbery, 1 count attempted robbery and 1 count assault with a deadly weapon.
On Saturday, a third robbery wanted suspect, Hugo Gutierrez-Mora, 21, turned himself in at the SCV sheriff’s station. All of the suspects were from SCV.
We are glad these individuals are off the street and can no longer victimize others.
