A series of luxury items stolen in the last couple of weeks suggests some Santa Clarita Valley residents are trying hard to maintain a high standard of living.

In addition to the usual items reported stolen by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station such as iPods and cameras, investigators are pursuing a handful of grand theft charges based on the value of odd items stolen recently.

Topping the list of items sparking the grand theft offenses are large chunks of cash, “sexy” underwear and a Pomeranian dog.

Sometime between Aug. 5 and Aug. 8, a brown Pomeranian named “Foxy” valued at $500 was snatched by someone speeding away in a black convertible, according to the report filed by investigating deputies.

Owners of the dog told deputies that they wrote down the license plate number of the car but were unable to find the piece of paper when asked.

According to the owners, Foxy got out the front gate of the family’s home on Spruce Street.
The owner was not at home at the time the dog got out.

A neighbor told the owner he saw someone in a black convertible vehicle grab the dog and place it in the vehicle, according to the report.

Another neighborhood woman told the owner she encountered a woman who was looking for the owner of a lost dog.

The owner, however, has received no calls from any such person.

In connection with an unrelated Grand Theft investigation, someone stole $500 worth of “very sexy” underwear from a store on Magic Mountain Parkway On Wednesday, between 5:15 p.m. and 5:45 p.m.

“The victim told that between the indicated times, a suspect or suspects unknown entered the location and stole several underwear,” deputies wrote in their report.

“All the underwear were stolen from the center display in the “very sexy” room,” they added.

In a third incident of Grand Theft, an employee at Magic Mountain admitted to having stolen close to $10,000 on two occasions by intercepting pneumatic tubes used to transport money and receipts.

The employee was, reportedly, seen on the amusement park’s video surveillance cameras transferring cash from a pneumatic tube to a box,  which was then put in her backpack. The same employee was, reportedly, seen five days later transferring more cash from a tube to a yellow bag.

When confronted with the video images, the woman apparently confessed to stealing the money.
The investigating sheriff’s deputy, in his report, wrote: “I asked her ‘why?’ and she was a single mother raising two children and needed the money to pay rent.”
