Teens Arrested for Vandalism
updated: Feb 13, 2013, 5:59 PM
Mark Todd Euglow, age 18, of Santa Barbara, and Jacob Tyler Kelliher, age 18, of
Garden Grove but originally from Santa Barbara, were arrested for numerous
charges stemming from an investigation into graffiti vandalisms that had
occurred on Santa Barbara's North End. Investigation revealed that Euglow had
committed these crimes after having been released from Santa Barbara County Jail
on his own recognizance following a December 17, 2012 felony arrest by SBPD
personnel for burglary and approximately 26 acts of graffiti vandalism.
On February 5, 2013 SBPD Youth Services Section Detective Gary Siegel received
information from a North End resident that Euglow might once again be actively
tagging in the area. The resident was familiar with Euglow's history and had
noticed that recent graffiti vandalisms bore a striking resemblance to those
previously attributed to Euglow. From February 6 through February 12, 2013
Detective Siegel and his partner, Detective Ben Ahrens, located and documented
several graffiti vandalisms that they attributed to Euglow. The vandalisms were
to public and private property on Calle Real, Hope Avenue, Hitchcock Way, and
Peach Grove Lane. Enough evidence was gathered that Detective Siegel was able
to obtain a warrant for Euglow's arrest for felony vandalism and for committing
a felony while released on his own recognizance. Additionally, Detective Siegel
obtained a search warrant for Euglow's residence on 300 Apple Grove Lane.
On February 12, 2013 Detective Siegel, Detective Ahrens, and other SBPD
personnel served the search warrant on Euglow's residence. Euglow was contacted
there and arrested. Also contacted was Kelliher, who was sleeping on a second
bed in Euglow's room. The detectives found several cans of spray paint,
markers, spray can nozzles, and a paint mask hidden in Euglow's clothes hamper.
Kelliher was found in possession of a paint marker. Additionally, a laptop
computer, an iPhone, cash, and stereo headphones were found during the search;
items that the detectives were able to confirm had been stolen from unlocked
vehicles. Subsequent investigation revealed that Euglow and Kelliher were
responsible for the thefts.
Euglow was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail for the felonies of vandalism,
committing a felony while released on bail or own recognizance, and grand theft.
He was also booked for the misdemeanors of possession of vandalism tools and
petty theft. His bail amount is $45,000.00.
Kelliher was arrested and booked in to Santa Barbara County Jail for the felony
of grand theft and the misdemeanors of possession of vandalism tools and petty
theft. His bail amount is $20,000.00.
