CHP unit missing? Sounds like there was a pursuit CHP vehicle abandoned officer possibly in danger.

Reported by Blazer

Around 5:00 pm Tuesday, CHP and Sheriff units spotted a pair of robbery suspects driving southbound on Highway 101 in a white Ford SUV. The pursuit in heavy traffic went on and off the freeway and ended at the Carpinteria Avenue exit. Suspects fled the vehicle and ran west into the salt marsh attempting to avoid arrest. 16 combined units of CHP and SB Sheriff were on scene, a k-9 officer was deployed and the suspects were quickly apprehended.

Wasn't that the one where they tried to arrest the Harlem Globetrotters, or someone like that who was in town (and not involved)?

No the Harlem Globetrotters was later on cannot remember exactly when the 1981 Robbery was at Bryant and Sons jewelry in the 800 Block of State street. 3 Black men entered the store and pulled guns after that their fate was sealed not one of them would leave that store alive. The owner of the store came out of his office gun in hand as I remember a shotgun and took 2 of them down he too was wounded 5 times I think. The last suspect was about to gun down the owner when the clerk at the cash register pulled out a .38 and shot the last bullet into the 3rd suspect I believe that mans name was Steven Brooks and as I remember he was the grand prize winner of a home later on... So I remember it's only been 36 years...The Harlem Globetrotter thing I think occurred in maybe around 1986 or 87...Not really sure 2 Black men robbed a Montecito Jewelry store and escaped police saw 2 Black men in a taxi cab and followed calling back up the taxi was felony stopped the black men in the cab Harlem Globetrotters not Jewelry Store robbers were treated like criminals and arrested. I can't remember which police officer said "Will they fit the description of the robbers." I don't think Bryant and Sons Jewelers ever got robbed after the 1981 Robbery...

I think all is well now I caught the call in the middle CHP Officer was in pursuit of a stolen vehicle suspects ditched it at Carpinteria Ave. I don't know where the officer went but they caught 2 suspects and one got chewed up alittle. They said code 4 so I assume all is well..

Drove by, looked like a major police pursuit. At least 15 cop cars (CHP and Sheriff) all out with their guns drawn. Pretty scary looking.
