An 18-year-old Canyon Country woman was arrested by detectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station on felony burglary charges Tuesday morning, according to a news release from the station.

The detectives had been investigating several separate incidents of residential burglary that were reported in and around the area of Isabella Parkway.

The criminal activity began in March when one residential burglary was reported, and the incidents increased on a monthly basis with three in April, three in May and seven reported to deputies this month.

The lengthy investigation, physical evidence, and witness accounts led detectives to put together the pieces of the crime spree puzzle and ultimately identify a primary suspect.

Detectives from the Burglary and Fraud team and city of Santa Clarita/Sheriff's Community Interaction Team (CIT) served two search warrants in the 26700 block of Isabella Parkway in Canyon Country at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

At one of the locations the deputies recovered more than 30 pieces of evidence including purses, iPhones, iPods, cameras, laptops and other items believed to be taken during the burglaries.

Arrested was Myesha Herndon, FB/18, who lives in the same area as many of the burglaries. She was booked at the SCV Sheriff's Station on felony burglary charges and is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail pending future court proceedings.

Detectives do not believe she acted alone and additional arrests are likely in the coming days. Detectives are processing the evidence and much of it has already been linked back to its rightful owners who will be contacted soon.

An overwhelming majority of the burglaries occurred when residents in the area left their windows or doors unlocked while they were away. Two of them occurred while the residents were home, had left their doors unlocked or open, and were in another room when valuables were stolen.
