Yesterday, the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station deputies arrested a 15-year-old for allegedly boarding an Antelope Valley line Metrolink train with an automatic assault weapon.
According to The Signal newspaper:
Deputies swarmed the Metrolink station at 22122 Soledad Canyon Road at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Passengers poked their heads out of the stopped trains doors as deputies closed in on the suspect. The baby-faced suspect was arrested, cuffed, frisked and pushed into the back of a deputy car.
The suspect was booked on felony possession of an assault weapon, felony possesion of a machine gun, felony posession of a concealed firearm and felony possession of a firearm with an altered serial number, Harris said. The suspect will be taken to Sylmar Juvenile Detention Center to await a court date, he said.
