Santa Maria residents Christopher Oxrider, 35, Robert Logan, 44, and Tammy Yates, 46, were also found to be in possession of methamphetamine, said Sgt. Alex Tipolt, spokesman with the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Dept.

In the “early morning hours” of Friday morning, Tipolt said, a witness saw three people acting suspiciously at the carwash, located on the 4800 block of Carpinteria Avenue.

“One of the subjects stood watch as the other two used pry bars to open coin boxes,” said Tipolt in a statement. “The witness attempted to contact the subjects in order to question their actions, although they fled the area in a vehicle.”

The witness called 911 and gave a description. Not long after, a Sheriff’s patrol car found a vehicle matching the description on northbound Highway 101, and stopped the car in the area of the Salinas Street intersection.

The suspects “were found to be in possession of $278.75 in quarters, burglary tools and methamphetamine,” Tipolt said.

Logan was arrested on suspicion of petty theft, felony vandalism, possession of burglary tools, conspiracy, and being under the influence of a controlled substance, Tipolt said. He was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail in lieu of $20,000.00 bail.

Oxrider was arrested on suspicion of petty theft, felony vandalism, possession of burglary tools, conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of narcotic paraphernalia, Tipolt said. He was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail on a Parole Detainer and held without bail.

Yates was arrested on suspicion of petty theft, felony vandalism, possession of burglary tools, conspiracy, and being under the influence of a controlled substance, Tipolt said. She was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail in lieu of $ 20,000.00 bail.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
