2 Arrested for Stealing Merchandise from Santa Barbara Solstice Festival Vendors

Two men were arrested for allegedly stealing merchandise overnight from vendors on display at Santa Barbara’s Summer Solstice festival in Alameda Park, according to the Santa Barbara Police Department.

Isaac Brown, 28, a transient, and Kory Brown, 41, of Los Angeles County, were arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor possession of stolen property, said Anthony Wagner, a police spokesman.

Kory also received charges of violating the terms of his parole that stemmed from a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon in Los Angeles County, Wagner said.

At about 1 p.m. on Sunday, police officers working the festival received reports from several vendors that their merchandise was stolen overnight, he said.

One of the vendors reportedly saw two suspects wearing the stolen clothing near the concert venue in the park, Wagner added.

The two men were arrested at the festival’s beer garden and several stolen items were recovered, he said.

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.
