A third man sought in connection with a string of farm burglaries on the Central Coast has been arrested.
A month long investigation led to the arrests last week of Travis Grant, and Ernest Johnson in connection with at least four farm burglaries in northern Santa Barbara County. This week, the third person being sought, Shaun Axe, was arrested at a Santa Maria home after Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s detectives received an anonymous tip.
Investigators say more than $70,000 worth of vehicles, equipment, and tools were stolen from the farms. A number of stolen items were recovered.
