Two suspects wanted for multiple counterfeiting incidents in Santa Clarita have been tracked down and arrested by deputies.

Natalie Phelps, 38, and Obed Uribe, 36, were arrested in the 43400 block of Gadsden Avenue in Lancaster after an investigation by deputies revealed the couple’s location.
“Phelps was responsible for an incident which was reported on 01/27/22 on the 19000 block of Stillmore Street in Canyon Country in which she stole money from the victim’s bank account while the victim was hospitalized for unrelated medical reasons,” Arriaga said. . “The suspect had been residing with the victim for a short period of time.”
Phelps took about $2,000 in the January incident.
