” SCPD officers quickly and stealthily responded to a burglary at the Xfinity store on the 500 block of River Street. The patrol team’s silent approach and methodical containment strategy led to a successful apprehension of the suspect as he exited the store with literally a grocery cart full of Xfinity merchandise.

All the stolen items (valued in thousands of dollars) were recovered and returned to the business.

The suspect, Kenneth Barger, a 41-year-old transient in Santa Cruz, was arrested for burglary, outstanding warrants, possession of drug paraphernalia, and burglary tools. (Under California Penal Code Section 466 PC, it is a crime to possess certain tools associated with the crime of burglary if those items are possessed with criminal intent.)”
