SANTA CLARITA - A Valencia man arrested three times in the last six months — picking up charges for burglary and drug possession — was arrested a fourth time this week, a prosecutor’s spokesman said.

Shilo Dockery, 35, of Tossano Drive in Valencia was arrested Monday by Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s deputies on suspicion of receiving known stolen property valued at more than $400.

Dockery had been arrested July 10 when local detectives and deputies with the Crime Impact Team and the Crime Prevention Team executed a search warrant for narcotics at a home in the Summit area of Valencia. A woman was also charged in the same incident.

In that case, Dockery pleaded guilty in Newhall Municipal Court to one misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance two days after he was arrested, said Ricardo Santiago, spokesman for the District Attorney’s office.

“The court ordered a deferred judgment for 36 months,” Santiago said. “He’s due back in court on that deferred judgment on Jan. 6, 2014, for a progress report.”

However, while his progress was being monitored, Dockery was arrested three more times.

On Sept. 26 local sheriff’s deputies arrested him on suspicion he committed a burglary.

Four days later, on Sept. 30, Dockery was arraigned on one count each of second-degree commercial burglary and petty theft. He entered a plea of not guilty to the charges, posted bail set at $20,000 and was released from jail.

According to the felony complaint filed against him, the victim in the burglary was Walmart.

Less than a month later, Dockery was arrested by local sheriff’s deputies on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance,

When asked about the status of Dockery’s October drug arrest, Santiago said: “There is no pending case regarding this matter.”

In his latest brush with the law, Dockery was arrested by patrol deputies at 11:50 p.m. Monday. The deputies booked him for receiving known stolen property valued at more than $400 and submitted the case to prosecutors.

On Thursday, prosecutors announced they would not prosecute Dockery.

“The case was reviewed for filing consideration on (Wednesday) but was declined due to insufficient evidence,” Santiago said Thursday.
