An alert detective using a mobile device to verify a hunch led a pack of Santa Barbara Police officers who caught a stolen vehicle suspect Monday morning.

Police followed the vehicle until enough officers were behind the vehicle that had traveled from the Shoreline Park area to Loma Alta.  That's where the stop was made.

The driver was held at gunpoint until he was frisked, handcuffed and taken away.

Flicka, I think they're "thinking" the same thing they do when they walk into traffic from between SUVs with their headphones on and their eyes glued to some device. Ignorance can be cured; stupidity can't.

YACHT ROCKED, Since often it says, "keys left inside unlocked car" there is no way to prevent thieves from taking those ones. What are people who do that thinking ?

Yes it is real, from various Google searches. St. Petersburg FL was highest at 83.4 % and Texas had 41% a year or so ago. I used those numbers as they are part of the 5 worst states of which we are one of. They are TX, CA, FL, MI and Ohio. The national average is albeit lower but we don't seem to be average at anything here.

Here it is, almost 2019, and car theft is still a thing. Why aren't cars hard to steal by now? We got GPS, OnStar, license plate readers, keys with chips in them, blah blah blah.

I don't know I just saw some friends in their Mustang and I'm confused I did not hear the description of the car only that it was a Mustang.
