Two Arrested for Multiple Felony Charges

Deputies were patrolling on Orchard Village Road around 7:30 a.m. when they ran a routine license plate check on a pick-up truck that came back as ‘STOLEN.’ A traffic stop was initiated and deputies made contact with two adult males in the vehicle.

The vehicle’s occupants were found to be in possession of heroin and methamphetamine for sales, a dirk/dagger, billy club, a replica hand grenade, counterfeit U.S. currency, burglary tools, multiple license plates, and numerous vintage items of high value.

Deputies arrested Michael Tupper, 31, of Santa Barbara and Christopher Pollay, 36, of Newbury Park on multiple charges, including several felonies. The two men were transported and booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station where Pollay remains in custody on $180,500 bail and Tupper on $30,000 bail.
