20 individuals have been arrested in connection with a five-month long investigation that involved the Santa Barbara Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, into the sales of illegal narcotics and firearms.
On March 29 at about 3 p.m., three individuals in a silver Hyundai Santa Fe arrive at the Four Seasons Biltmore on 1260 Channel Drive. They case the area. Two men go inside Silverhorn jewelry store inside the hotel and while one subject distracts the clerk, the other breaks into a display case and flee to a getaway car with $35,500 worth of stolen jewelry.
They say people go to auto races just to see the crashes. If so, then they got their money's worth at Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Alabama. Officials say 35 of the 40 cars in the race left with some damage.
