Burglars scared from two homes in Saugus

Burglars broke into two Saugus homes Friday but fled without taking anything, scared away by residents or, in one case, a barking dog, sheriff's officials said.

The break-ins occurred within 40 minutes of each other, said sheriff's Sgt. Tom Jensen.

About 12:15 p.m., two men entered a home on Grovepark Drive through an open window, he said. They were seen leaving in a white SUV.

About a half-hour later, a Saugus resident was sleeping in an upstairs bedroom of a home on Camargo Drive when intruders were scared out of his home by a barking dog.

Jensen wouldn't say which blocks the crimes occurred in, saying the incidents were under investigation.

The two burglaries appeared to be related, sheriff's officials said.

Although Jensen said there appeared to be an increase in burglaries in the Saugus area, it wasn't clear whether the crimes Friday were connected to a rash of similar burglaries several months ago elsewhere in the Santa Clarita Valley.

In many of those cases, the burglars kicked in the front doors of homes in the Hasley Hills and Fair Oaks Ranch communities of Castaic and Canyon Country before ransacking the residences.
