More than $40,000 worth of equipment was stolen from storage containers at the Forest Service Texas Canyon Station here early this week, including about 30 chain saws, four generators, an arc welder and a variety of hand tools.
Forest Service law enforcement officers and Santa Clarita Sheriff’s deputies discovered the theft early Tuesday (March 5) after responding to a burglary reported by firefighters at the station. Upon arrival, the officers discovered that the chain-link fence surrounding the facility had been cut and the containers holding firefighting and recreation-crew equipment had been broken into.
To date, no suspects have been identified and the investigation is ongoing.
