Santa Barbara Police are now identifying a man they’ve arrested in connection with a series of armed robberies of parking kiosks in the city.
Three kiosks have been robbed in recent weeks by a disguised man. Police started checking with nearby businesses which have surveillance cameras, and found clear pictures of the man they think is the robber, which they then made public.
Detectives say a tip led to the arrest of 49 year old Paul Gerald Gradias. They say they arrested the longtime Santa Barbara resident as he was walking down Salinas Street just before noon yesterday.
