Armed Homeowner Scares off Burglar

A gun-wielding Saugus homeowner scared off a daytime burglar Wednesday afternoon.

No one was hurt and nothing was stolen, said Lt. Tom Bryski of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

About 1:25 p.m., a lone male was reportedly spotted trying to break into the rear of a house in the 20000 block of Canterwood Drive.

“The person inside the house saw him trying to get in so he pulled out a gun,” Bryski said. “The burglar saw the homeowner then took off.”

Sheriff’s deputies detained a man suspected in the crime. Charges have not yet been filed.
