Girl Helps Sheriff’s Deputies Find Man Accused Of Committing Lewd Act In Goleta

Posted on Tuesday, February 23, 2016 2:54pm

A ten your old girl is being credited with helping to arrest a man Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies say was committing a lewd act.

The girl was walking to school just before eight this morning when she saw a man in a parked car near Berkley Road, and Cambridge Drive in Goleta taking part in a lewd activity.  She fled, but not before memorizing the car’s license plate.  The girl notified a nearby school crossing guard, who called sheriff’s deputies.

Officers tracked down Jose Figueroa at a home in Goleta, and arrested him for charges of indecent exposure, committing a lewd act and annoying a minor.

Detectives say they are trying to determine if the 45 year old man is a suspect in three other similar cases near Goleta schools.
