On June 27, 2018, Property Crimes Detectives and the Street Crimes Unit contacted and arrested Santa Barbara resident, 27 year old, Jose Enrique Reyes in the area of 500 E. Ortega Street.  Reyes was taken into custody for an outstanding felony warrant and was suspected in two active theft investigations. A subsequent probation search of Reyes’ residence was conducted and the folllowing items were seized:

  • 21 suspect stolen bicyles
  • Suspected stolen electronics
  • Burglary tools
  • Narcotics and paraphernalia

 

SBPD Detectives are working to identify the victims and rightful owners of the suspected stolen bicycles. Thus far, six victims have been identified and contacted.  The estimated value of the recovered bicycles based on current condition and make/model, has been approximated at $23,000.

The Santa Barbara Police Department would like to remind its’ citizens to lock their bicycles with strong and sturdy locks, make note of their make/model & serial numbers, and encourage bicycle owners to register their serial numbers on https://bikeindex.org. Bike Index is a worldwide database that includes over 168,000 catalogued bicycles. To date, thousands of stolen bicycles have been recovered around the world as a result of bicycle owners registering their bikes with Bike Index.

We were only referring to a poster who was correcting another ... Perhaps the sentence I assumed was being eroniously corrected was... The Santa Barbara Police Department would like to remind its’ citizens to lock their bicycles with strong and sturdy locks,. In this instance it is ...its...no apostrophe. It’s one thing to let correct grammar go. But to have someone ride in and correct others erroneously is just Dang wrong.

Missbleu: The sentence it appeared you were referring to—the one directly before your posting—was, "There are all kinds of cordless tools that can slice through a lock like its butter. " Which, of course, takes an apostrophe.

Correcting people only helps self esteem. No one is created equal. We are all a different human creature. Nothing is absolute.

Re: The Santa Barbara Police Department would like to remind its’ citizens to lock their bicycles with strong and sturdy locks, I contend it is its... its citizens ...not the corrective suggestion of its’... I was just trying to enlighten a poster who was was in fact correcting someone with erroneous grammar education. But if you feel so strongly about it ...so be it.

There is nothing wrong with getting hair transplants either other than being expensive it almost looks like he gets them.

It seems like the meth/drug problem “excluding weed” is getting worse in SB. Dude should’ve just embraced going bald or shaved it. Chicks dig confidence, not felons with hair plugs.

Nope, Missbleu, it definitely takes an apostrophe in this instance. From the link you provided: "It's is the contraction (abbreviated form) of "it is" and "it has." It's has no other meanings--only "it is" and "it has."

Well actually in this case it is ...its. No apostrophe. For more clarification: http://www.businesswritingblog.com/business_writing/2006/05/its_its_or_its_.html

There are all kinds of cordless tools that can slice through a lock like its butter. Wanna make millions? Invent a lightweight bike lock that can't be cut/picked. While you're at it, let's have an attachable GPS thingy w/ app that can help locate a stolen bike.

If you "lost" a bike, get down to the SBPD station on Figueroa St and see if yours is there. Good luck.

Hmm. Think this is connected to the recovery of that guy's bike a couple weeks ago? (The Home Improvement vid and all that.)
