On November 22, 2021, at about 2:27 a.m., deputies were dispatched to a report of a suspicious vehicle near Carnation Street and Buttercup Street in Fillmore. Deputies located the vehicle and attempted to contact its occupants. The vehicle failed to yield, and a short pursuit occurred. The suspicious vehicle collided with a block wall and the occupants fled on foot. The occupants were not located, and the abandoned vehicle was later determined to be a stolen flatbed truck from the Sylmar area. 

The bed of the truck contained numerous items that included a blue Graco bag with an Ultra sander and Dewalt charger inside, potted plants, two rolls of black roofing material, several pieces of 2 x 4 lumber, black rubber boots, Whirlpool microwave oven trim kit, brown construction work belt, two sledgehammers, red Porter Cable air compressor, red gas can, plugin industrial light, one Red Eagle crawfishing kit, black Titan toolbox, and one yellow Karcher pressure washer. These items are currently being retained at the Fillmore Police Station.
