Suspects Caught on Video Stealing E-Bikes from Downtown Parking Garage
By an edhat reader
On the evening of 1/6/23 the suspects gained access to a room where e-bikes are kept in a residential parking garage in downtown Santa Barbara. They did not take anything that night.
The suspect returned the next morning and stole 1 e-bike at 6:51am. They returned with help on 1/8/23 and stole 5 more bikes throughout that day.
The footage clearly shows the vehicle & plate number (a 2015 silver Kia Forte with a license plate ending in P197) as well as fairly clear shots of their faces. I am assuming they were using the storm as cover, knowing people would not be out and around.
If anyone has any information on the suspects, please SBPD / CSI Trevino at (805) 897-2465 with information as well. Thank you.
