Man With No-Bail Warrant Arrested After Barricading Himself in Goleta Apartment

A Carpinteria man was arrested Monday after leading law enforcement officers on a foot pursuit, barricading himself in a Goleta apartment and refusing to surrender, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office.

The department's AB 109 Compliance Reponse Team were searching for Jacob Dreyer, 28, who had a no-bail arrest warrant due to violating terms of his probation, said Kelly Hoover, a sheriff's spokeswoman. 

Around 2:15 p.m., sheriff's personnel located Dreyer, a convicted felon, on the 300 block of Mathilda Drive in Goleta, she said.

“CRT members attempted to apprehend Dreyer who immediately ran, leading them on a short foot pursuit,” Hoover said. “CRT members chased Dreyer until he entered an apartment, which was later determined to belong to an acquaintance, where he barricaded himself.”

Sheriff's deputies established a perimeter and made announcements asking him to surrender peacefully, as well as phone calls into the apartment, she said.

Authorities sent out an emergency alert telling residents in the area to shelter in place during the incident. 

Dreyer remained barricaded and refused to surrender, but came out after authorities broke down the front door, Hoover said. 

He was taken into custody and booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail.

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.
