Search On For Serial Burglar On Central Coast

Authorities are looking for a serial burglar in Santa Barbara County who’s believed to have struck more than a half dozen times since the first of the year.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies say the burglar focused on the Los Olivos area, and has been using drills to remove locks to get into businesses.

Eight burglaries have been confirmed. Using surveillance video, investigators think the break-ins are tied to a young white male wearing jeans, a hooded sweatshirt, and a white mask.
