Teens Arrested for Vandalism
updated: Feb 13, 2013, 5:59 PM

Source: SBPD

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.

Kind of off topic, but would the poster SBPD please take more time to report crimes with photos that are a bit more serious than this? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad these two were caught, but a lot of time was spent on this notice when last week a RAPE suspect was on the run after the man's 13 or 14 year old stepdaughter was found to be pregnant.

I wouldn't say anything, but this reporting is so skewed you have to ask why this is more important to report on with all the details and photos when the other really wasn't reported on and there were no real details for the public to act on. Publishing something in the manner that they did was not a public service, in my humble opinion. - A suspected RAPIST on the run and no one knew what he looked like, but the SBPD wanted to let people know what happened. It could not get any more ridiculous.

Does anyone else think priorities need to change here?

I saw a sprawl while exiting Mission St. (southbound): "Support Your Local Artists." Pablo Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, Bumbles "I'd Rather Fight for a Terryton" Buglow, and Koo-koo for Koco-bong Kelliher. They are a disgrace to themselves, their families, to each of us, and to the art community.

Also, if you read the comments and view the number of responses to graffiti, reports, complaints and arrests, the cops are doing just what the community wants them to do.

374167 - I think that is a simple matter of reporting news (of all stripes) as it happens. Otherwise, provide statistics that support the charge.

167, my thought is that it's about what the po po have done rather than what they haven't got buttoned up yet.

What and how crimes and suspects are reported to the public is dependent upon who's tender hearts are going to get hurt. Tennis coach? Music instructor? We'd know about it in a hot second.

@167: Why can't both types of crimes be reported? No reason it has to be an either/or thing. Graffiti vandalism affects everyone and should never be ignored, especially when the cops actually catch little creeps like these two paragons--and repeat offenders at that!

167, you are reading a police report for an investigation that has concluded, or at least been finalized to turn over to the D.A. It does not mean the police are not working on the other case, or the public likes graffiti cases more than solving rape cases.
A sexual assault case takes a lot more discretion and TLC and unless you know something specific, speculating about why and when they put information out to the public is futile. Any criminal behavior and disrespect for public or private property should be dealt with, and these more petty crimes are often practice for more serious offenses as time goes on. Lighten up, I'd say.

Great work, SBPD. Quality of life crimes are just the beginning and these tools will set a nice example. And with juicy bail amounts, it'll cost them just to post bail. I'm for cutting off the offending index finger that sprayed the paint, but until that is the law, then let's put them on 2,000hrs of community service, erasing graffiti.

I've always thought Graffiti is one big FU to the community - those kids should be put on work detail, in public with a sign saying what they got charged for. Humiliate them!

I'd like to highlight this arrest for those who bash Latinos in arrest notifications when there is not yet any background info or proof that they are guilty or not or citizens or not. I believe that is done due to their appearance. Pretty extreme racism, I think. We have no way of knowing if they are citizens or not.

Yes, Latinos are often responsible, but these kids are white and probably come from a better economic background. Look at the neighborhoods they hit! They really screwed up and are ^*%*%.

Where's the extreme, knee-jerk, rage and rant reaction against stupid, criminal, destructive white kids?! Where are the calls for these people to clean their work while handcuffed? For all anyone knows they could be "anchor babies" from eastern european countries. Okay, I'm pushing it; I too know the name "Euglow" from living in SB.

I'm American, thus I still believe in innocent until proven guilty. Although I would be unable to serve on a jury for this case and many others if the cases went that far, due to my consumption of local media. But the process must be respected and adhered to.

Again, our system is not perfect, but it is better than most in the world.

Re: rape case coverage.
Thanks 201P.
And to 167, I read multiple local news sites and national news, through Google news page and/or LA & NY Times, every day. Yes, I have the time and interest; I realize many do not. But if you don't keep or follow up, or more accurately follow "back," you cannot criticize news coverage.

Did I read correctly that they sprayed on Peach Grove AND they lived on Apple Grove? Were they trying to throw the Police off track? This is a great example of why offenders need more than a slap on the wrist.

I live in the neighborhood and had called the City numerous times regarding the constant graffiti vandalism on Perry Ford's Calle Real wall, fire hydrants,light standards, communication boxes and the sidewalks and curbs.
It's is hard to believe that the Judges / DA does not prosecute to a higher level. I hope the LAME PARENTS, who live on Apple Grove, and their off spring pay financially and with serious jail time.

Why would any comment suggest "sweet boys"??? These guys are punks and continued to vandalize businesses with graffiti and burglarize their neighbors even after being " prosecuted" on prior dates! They are criminals and as far as I am concerned, Mommy & Daddy should be held accountable as well due to the fact their kids were active with graffiti in the neighborhood for years..

It's not only vandalism; they're also going down for grand theft. I can't believe the low bail.

170P, the finger comment wishing for sharia law here at home reveals a bit of that knee jerk rage you were asking about. Otherwise, I'm afraid you're not going to find those racist ranters on this thread; this kind of thing--crime by white people--doesn't count to them. They see it like so: when a member of some group they don't like commits a crime, they blame the whole group; when a white guy commits a crime, they (correctly) blame the guy.
