September 6, 2020 – Santa Barbara, Ca.

Some people just have a “thing” for guns…even for replica firearms.  Such appears to be the case leading to the September 4th arrest of 27-year-old Santa Barbara resident Sean Dalton Bartholow.

Bartholow’s Friday afternoon began to get interesting when, according to Santa Barbara Police Department spokesman Anthony Wagner, a staff member at a downtown area homeless shelter reported “a man possibly armed with a gun” on the premises. SBPD patrol officers responded to the scene and “evacuated portions of the building” while they conducted interviews of witnesses and of any bystanders who may have seen the suspect individual.

Those interviews and an area search lead to the cops finding Bartholow nearby, whereupon contact was made with him. It was quickly determined that Bartholow was known to the cops and was sought on “a felony warrant alleging possession of a weapon on a school campus,” as well as suspicion of narcotics violations.  With that background as evidence, officers took Bartholow into custody and found him to be in possession of “a replica firearm” which was actually a BB gun.

Bartholow was transported to Santa Barbara County Jail, where he was booked on charges relating to his arrest warrant, while no crimes were charged relating to the incident reported by witnesses at the homeless shelter.
