520 Criminals arrested by Specialized Teams working out of Lancaster Sheriff's Station

Lancaster Station's three specialized teams fight crime by keeping constant pressure on criminals

During the first six months of this year, Lancaster Station's "Burglary Suppression Team" made 242 arrests, served 55 search warrants and 83 arrest warrants. They also recovered 3 stolen vehicles and 33 firearms. Their hard work resulted in the recovery of stolen property valued at approximately $272,000.00. Several of the suspects arrested, were involved in nine separate "Burglary Rings" operating in the Antelope Valley.

During that same time, Lancaster Station's "Robbery Suppression Team" arrested 96 suspects and served 7 search warrants. Based on this, they were able to solve 73 separate Robbery crimes.

In response to the State of California's "Prison Re-alignment" program (AB109), which created a class of Parolees whose supervision is now the responsibility of the individual Counties, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department created several "Parolee Compliance Teams" to assist the County's Probation Department with the monitoring of this class of Parolee.

These "Parolees" are now referred to as Post-release Supervised Persons or" PSP's." Since the program began on October 1, 2011, the total number of "PSP's" living in Lancaster Station's patrol area has grown to 332. During that same time frame, the "Parolee Compliance Team," working with Lancaster Station's "TOP/CORE" Deputies have conducted 28 special operations, 315 compliance checks, 68 address verifications and 33 "no show" checks. These operations and compliance checks have resulted in 182 arrests and the seizure of 13 firearms. It should be noted that many of the "PSP's" have been arrested multiple times since the program began and all of the arrests were for new crimes or "fresh charges."

Lancaster Station Captain, Bob Jonsen, commented that Lancaster Station will continue to actively monitor the PSP's as well as all other Parolee and probationers living in our area. We will ensure that they are all in compliance with the terms of their release, and our Specialized Units will continue their very aggressive pursuit of those who choose to commit crimes in our community.
