A 20-year-old Buellton man was arrested Thursday after he and several other suspects broke into a Goleta business, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.

Eriberto Garcia was taken into custody after the burglary, which occurred shortly after midnight at Goleta Barbers, 5870 Hollister Ave., said sheriff’s spokeswoman Kelly Hoover.

“Deputies were on a call for service in the 5800 block of Hollister Avenue when they heard the sound of crashing glass at Goleta Barbers,” Hoover said. “They witnessed several subjects kicking in the front door of the business.”

The suspects fled on foot with deputies in pursuit, Hoover said, and managed to chase down Garcia.

Deputies created a search perimeter, and brought in a K-9 unit to assist, but were unable to locate the other suspects, Hoover said.

Garcia was charged with burglary, vandalism, obstructing and resisting a peace officer and a criminal street-gang enhancement, Hoover said.

The case remained under investigation.

zuma and overtaxed—are you two the same hateful person?  You sound and write very much alike.  Just to remind you that no one agrees with your racist and ignorant views.  Maybe the best thing for you to do is leave California and move to a state where you might be surrounded with other people who look and think like you—try Idaho or Montana.

Mexiforna is now called Taxifornia, so the state is one messed up welfare state I agree. Many companies are leaving the welfare food stamp state, because of the poor work ethic and frivoulous lawsuits killing business.

To many on the dole!!!!!
