Buellton Gang-Banger Barbershop Burglar Busted Breaking In

Santa Barbara – According to Kelly Hoover, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer, just after midnight on May 16th “Deputies were on a call for service…when they heard the sound of crashing glass at Goleta Barbers.”  Ever on the alert for the sound of breaking glass in business districts at that hour, the deputies proceeded on foot toward the noise and, according to Hoover’s report to the media, “witnessed several subjects kicking in the front door of the business.”

When the glass-breakers observed that they were being observed—by uniformed Sheriff’s Deputies no less—they took a break from their breaking and immediately fled as fleetly as their feet would fly.  For their part, the Deputies, deeming the destruction devoid of decent decorum, pursued the perfidiously putative pilferers with professionally proficient pursuit protocols.  Shortly thereafter, Eriberto Garcia, 20, was caught, controlled, and confined in cuffs.

Additional Deputies arrived on the scene and quickly created a search perimeter of the area.  A K-9 unit was summoned to assist, but even the keen ken of a canine couldn’t contribute to the capture of additional miscreants, and those efforts came to naught as, Hoover reported, deputies “were unable to locate the other suspects.”

For his part, Mr. Garcia, a man who will likely never challenge the domination of Usain Bolt at any distance, was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on charges of burglary, vandalism, obstructing and resisting a peace officer, and committing these crimes in furtherance of a criminal street gang.
