Man Arrested For String Of Burglaries In Santa Barbara County

Posted on Friday, May 2, 2014 2:42pm

A man has been arrested for a string of commercial burglaries in Santa Barbara County.

During the last month, six break-ins occurred at businesses ranging from a gas station, to a shoe store in the Goleta area, with cash taken from the businesses.  In multiple instances, surveillance cameras caught the burglar, and Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s detectives say they identified a suspect, 21 year old Dylan Heintz.  Deputies spotted him in a Goleta neighborhood, where he was taken into custody without incident.

Detectives say Henitz is also a suspect in some Los Angeles County burglaries, and has prior burglary convictions in both counties.
