Yesterday, Santa Barbara Police Department officers took multiple reports of items being stolen from vehicles from the area of 1500 Dover Road. Today, officers were able to locate and arrest two suspects in connection with these thefts. Dozens of stolen items were recovered and returned to their owners. Great work by our day-shift team!
Always remember to lock your car doors, don’t leave an extra set of keys in your vehicle, and keep high-value items out of view or in a secure location.
