The person of interest has been canvassing local residential neighborhoods in recent weeks, claiming that she is collecting donations for Children’s Hospital in order to purchase books, according to a Sheriff’s Station press release.

It has been determined that the business name on the receipts she issued for cash donations does not appear to be connected to a legitimate charity.

Local detectives would like to locate “Sanchez” for questioning to determine whether her collections are legitimate.

She was described by one victim as having a speech impediment.

Anyone with information about these incidents or this person of interest can contact Detective Sgt. J. Anderson at 661-55-1121 or jranders@lasd.org. Submit anonymous tips to LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

“We always encourage residents to immediately report criminal or suspicious activity in their neighborhoods,” the press release said. “…We encourage you to stay engaged with helping us keep Santa Clarita safe. Remember, by working together, we can send a ‘Not in Santa Clarita’ message.”

"Sirena Sanchez"
