Gang Members Caught on Camera

Santa Barbara police arrested four teenagers-three of them gang members-in connection with the September robbery and physical assault of a 50-year-old Santa Barbara resident. Authorities allege the teens robbed the man at knifepoint and hit him on the head, then used his credit cards to make purchases over the next two days. Security cameras at Sears enabled detectives to track and arrest the suspects, one of whom is still at large.
