Police Crackdown on Downtown Vagrants
updated: Mar 19, 2014, 8:12 PM

UPDATE and photos by John Palminteri

STREET TRANSIENTS REACT TO SANTA BARBARA POLICE CRACKDOWN

It's led to multiple arrests and citations in the last two weeks on State St. between Ortega St. and Cota St. One person says those hanging out and selling colored rocks, home made jewelry and playing music are not committing a crime. Police say it's much more than that. Offenses include shoplifting, drugs, blocking the sidewalk and taking food from outside restaurant areas. Police Chief Cam Sanchez calls them vagrants. He say most are rejecting local help, and have come to Santa Barbara from outside of California.
