Scooter Thief Escapes Arrest And Evades Police Search On South Coast, Remains At Large
While investigating a stolen vehicle call in the Santa Barbara foothills Tuesday night, police came upon a suspect trying to hotwire a scooter near Parma Park.
During the arrest, though, the suspect got away.
The escape took place while the suspect reportedly had handcuffs on either one or both wrists.
The 24-year-old was identified as Michael Jordan, who has a criminal history in the area.
Jordan was spotted Wednesday near a large, abandoned house there.
It was surrounded, then checked by police, including a canine unit, for about two hours, but Jordan was gone and remains on the run.
