Armed Robbery at Goleta Rite Aide

As I recall, the suspect was apprehended within the Fairview shopping center, near Sherill Way. He didn't have a current address or valid CDL, but did have misdemeanor warrants. Safe to assume he was 'homeless,' or 'houseless,' if you prefer. If any scanner folks have better info, please share, as the above is from memory.
Likely the main charges are Battery (242) and Robbery (211), which includes taking by threat of force or fear. Could also be ADW (245), or an obscure violation , 244 P.C., 'Assault with Caustic Chemicals or flammable Substances.' Up to the DA in the end.

Great thing to come back home to after a fun weekend away. Assumption time, but what the hell, right? Chances are I'm correct, even if by using an assumption. So this clown was caught. Where was he caught? If the perp was caught by the creek, behind the shopping center we can safely assume "houseless neighbor" shenanigans.
If it was a "houseless neighbor" behind this, fantastic! Now they're using chemical weapons against hard working people. They already caught one with a loaded gun by the wharf.
Looks like evolution is taking place, but not the kind of evolution we need. If the perp was in fact a "houseless neighbor" in this case, the message is a bad message.
Also if this was a "houseless neighbor" can people please not make excuses such as ptsd, mental illness, income inequity, rising house proces or covid?
This was a bad person, regardless of "houseless neighbor" status or not. The thing is that when it is a "houseless neighbor" the litany of begins. Stop making excuses for them and stop treating them as a protected species when they do bad things.
After all, if it wasn't a "houseless neighbor" then you know they're going to jail since the average person doesn't have the same protections.

Some locals may get their wish: Santa Barbara may become less attractive to tourists (anyway the ones who pay for rooms, nice meals, boat rides. And buy souvenirs, not leave them in the bushes.)

2 of the active ingredients in ACE wasp & hornet spray & some of their "manifestations":

Cypermethrin: Poisoning can present as a medical emergency with neurological, gastrointestinal or cardiac manifestations.
Prolonged bradycardia following acute oral intoxication with cypermethrin is a rare entity.
In view of the absence of antidote, conservative management has been found effective in prolonged bradycardia induced by cypermethrin toxicity.

Prallethrin: Pyrethroids are known for their neurotoxicity in vertebrates and humans [3]. It is unclear if certain clinical features are unique to poisoning due to a particular member of the pyrethroid family.

Absolutely, it is a toxin. Felony assault to use it on another person. Pepper spray and Mace are irritants, specifically non-lethal. Bug spray contains toxic chemicals.

Yes it's a weapon and the clerk was sprayed. It's not a gun or a knife but it is a weapon. Have you ever been sprayed with bug spray?

Sheriffs located and arrested the suspect in short order; K-9 was en route but didn't get to play. I'm sure he got a treat though.

Steal anything under $900 and you are home free. Why did we let our elected legislators do this to us. Senator Monique Limon and Assemblyperson Steve Bennett, what are you going to now do about this?
