Wanted Suspect Arrested After SBCC Lockdown
Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) was placed on lockdown after a wanted suspect fled from police in the area early Wednesday evening.
Roger the Scanner Guy reported Sheriff's Deputies and Santa Barbara Police attempted to serve a search warrant when the suspect fled in the 300 Block of Loma Alta.
Since the suspect had a history of being armed, SBCC sent out a campus-wide alert around 5:45 p.m. stating an armed intruder was on SBCC Main Campus on Cliff Drive. "Take appropriate action, RUN HIDE or FIGHT!" the alert stated.
A K9 unit and air support were called in to search for the suspect described as a light-skinned Hispanic male with a shaved head wearing a white shirt with dark plaid shorts.
The suspect was then believed to be in the 200 Block of La Marina where law enforcement sent out a reverse 911 call to nearby residents.
Roger the Scanner Guy reported the suspect was arrested at 6:29 p.m.
It has not been confirmed whether the suspect was armed or if he was actually on SBCC's campus.
