Update by Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office
June 25, 2021

The Sheriff’s Office Compliance Response Team (CRT) has taken a wanted suspect safely into custody after he barricaded himself inside an apartment in Santa Maria. At approximately 7:00 a.m. yesterday, members of CRT served an arrest warrant at the residence of 42-year-old Miguel Alcazar in the 300-block of East Enos. Deputies had attempted to contact Alcazar two weeks earlier during a traffic stop where Alcazar fled, causing a pursuit. This pursuit was terminated in the interest of public safety after Alcazar failed to stop at stop signs and drove the wrong way into opposing traffic, endangering the motoring public.

When detectives arrived yesterday, entry was made into the residence, however Alcazar refused to surrender. A semi-automatic rifle was immediately visible to detectives in the room Alcazar was last know to be in. Deputies set a perimeter around the apartment and vacated surrounding and affected residences for their safety.

Santa Maria Police Officers and the Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Team (SET) responded to assist in taking Alcazar into custody. A search of each attached residence was conducted to ensure all unrelated civilians had been evacuated. While they were attempting to have him surrender, Alcazar gained access to a neighboring residence through an attic crawl space. Members of SET located Alcazar in a neighboring residence and took him into custody safely and uninjured at 11:19 a.m.

A search of the residence revealed two un-serialized (ghost gun) semi-automatic rifles, a semi-automatic pistol, ammunition, heroin, fentanyl, and methamphetamine. Alcazar was transported to the Santa Barbara County Jail where he was booked for being a felon in possession of a firearm (felony), obstructing a peace officer (misdemeanor), burglary (felony), prohibited person in possession of ammunition (felony), possession of a controlled substance for sale (felony), possession of a baton (felony), and a warrant for a violation of Post Release Supervision. Alcazar is being held without bail.

SB Sheriff's Office responding to an armed and barricaded subject. Interference on the scanner is preventing me from hearing location.

Sheriff’s Office is working in the 300-block of East Enos in Santa Maria - please avoid the area. Deputies attempted warrant service at 7am, wanted suspect barricaded alone in an apartment and is believed to be armed.

"Ghost Guns," an increasing problem. These weapons have been illegal to buy or sell in CA since 1989 - when this guy was a baby. Background checks are useless to stem the issue. There need to be stings to find and put the makers and sellers out of business.

JB I’d put money on the “ghost guns” are just 80% lowers. You used to be able to drill it at home make up a Serial # and not have to report it to the feds or CA. There are a lot of them out there the GOV/state don’t know about but are perfectly ok to own.

Roger, if you don't mind me asking, what kind of scanner do use and did you have to do anything special to get SBPD broadcast? Interested in getting one!

You don't have to do anything special..I still think the best frequencies are listed on David Mendoza's website he was a Radio Shack manager at one time. He has 2 things on his website information about diabetics and responder frequencies from S.B. County..

460.100 Is SBPD's main channel 460.400 is their Admin. channel 2 where names are ran, license plates etc.. I have several scanners an old Radio shack 200 channel programable analog, a Bearcat desktop 500 channel, a 300 channel bearcat handheld, and a digital Bearcat....I think the 300 channel Bear cat analog is the best though the PD Might go digital they haven't yet
