On April 8, 2020, around 11:30 P.M., A Santa Barbara Police Sergeant was leaving work when he interrupted a burglary-in-progress of two individuals attempting to break into an outside area of the Police Department dedicated to supplies. 

The Sergeant was able to immediately detain one of the involved, Shauna Paddelford, age 50. The other suspect, described as white male adult with shaggy light hair and dark clothing fled on foot in an unknown direction.

Several Officers responded to the area but were unable to locate the outstanding suspect.

Paddelford was booked at County Jail for 459 PC – Burglary, 463 PC – Looting During State of Emergency, and 148(a)(1) PC – Resist an Officer.

The investigation remains on-going.

Yep, I definitely agree that she was after their toilet paper stash :-) I can not understand why I am able to get most things I need at the grocery stores but I've tried 6 diferent stores and every one of them has a completely empty toilet paper ( tissues, wipes, napkins etc. ) aisle. Between recycled TP and all of the arboreal forrest (the lungs of the earth) that Charmin & Cottonelle are cutting down to make TP with and the fact that only 30% of the world even uses TP......... WHY IS IT ALL GONE ???

Actually I heard they drove an old moving van next to the building. Inside the police found a giant magnet attached to several batteries and a control device to activate magnet. The magnetic attraction was so strong the van tipped over but items in the evidence room were damaged......or maybe I saw that on TV.

Funny how in the absence of any facts people just speculate and fantasize letting their prejudices run riot. I suppose when you're bored to death and have no hobbies to distract you it's fun to contribute and feed the outrage machine with the usual suspects front and center. Have fun y'all.

Coast - I hate to say I have personal experience in this stuff. Most meth is domestic and not sold by East/West siders. Sure, gangsters deal, but unlike in the movies, most meth users get it from a source not affiliated with low level gangs. If you want to stop meth, you need to focus on domestic production/distribution.

4;20, The kind of supplies you are talking about ( Firearms, ammo, protective vest ect..) would not be in an outdoor supply shed. That would be locked away inside of a secure building. Not an outdoor supply shed that anyone could walk up to. Only an idiot would think that's where the local PD keeps evidence or firearms. And the article says an outdoor supply shed! Those holds rakes , shovels, brooms, toilet paper ect.. So 4;20pm, go back to eating your boogers, the adults are talking.

A supply room is for supplies, Rakes, shovels, toilet paper ect.. Evidence room is completely differnt, and NO they have never and will never keep an evidence room outside with the supplies. Evidence rooms are always locked away in a secured building. So NO they were not going after meth or evidence stuff, they most likely was going after the PDs toilet paper.
