Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
A 28-year-old Sylmar man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol on The Old Road at Sierra Highway at 2:15 a.m., a sheriff’s report said. Deputies stopped the man because he was weaving in his lane and had an expired registration. The man refused to look at the deputy for about a minute and had three open beer cans in the backseat of his car. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI after refusing a breath test and field sobriety test, saying that he was doing so on “previous advice of an attorney.”

Several items were taken from a Saugus resident’s home and placed on a walkway outside the home on the 19000 block of Wilson Lane, where they were sprayed with sprinklers in the early morning hours, a sheriff’s report said. The resident left her home around 11 p.m. Friday and returned home around 2:30 a.m., Saturday, where she found several items missing — including her computer, iron, sunglasses and some tools. She then found the missing items outside on her walkway, wet. The woman had left her sliding glass door closed but unlocked and the thief was able to enter her home despite the presence of two dogs, including a brown pit bull. “The suspect was able to move through the victim’s home un-bothered by the presence of the dogs,” a deputy stated in the report.

Drunk in Public
A 35-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of being drunk in public after deputies found him passed out on a bike path behind the 18000 block of Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country around 12:30 p.m., a sheriff’s report said. Deputies saw the man passed out on the bike path and attempted to wake him up. “After a minute of shaking him, he finally woke up,” the deputy wrote in the report. “Even though I was standing four feet from him, I could smell the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath and person,” the deputy continued. The man, described as a well-known transient, could not stand or walk on his own and was taken into custody for his own safety.

A 22-year-old Valencia woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after she crashed her Honda Civic on Via Aranda at Avenida Cappela late Monday night, a sheriff’s report said. When deputies asked her if she had any alcoholic beverages, she told them, “I had two glasses of strawberry wine at home.” She told deputies she left her home after having a verbal disagreement with her boyfriend, saying, “I peeled out like a bat out of hell.” She said she swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle and crashed her car.

Annoying/Molesting Phone Calls (Workplace)
A woman reported a 34-year-old Palmdale woman was calling her 100 to 200 times a day at her workplace on Lyons Avenue in Newhall. The calls began June 7, despite the victim taking out a temporary restraining order against the Palmdale woman. The Palmdale woman — whom the victim recognized as a childhood friend because of her voice — would call the victim derogatory names and threaten her during the calls, the sheriff’s report said.
