Attempted Armed Robbery in City Parking Lot

Police Searching for Suspect


Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Santa Barbara police officers are responding to a reported armed robbery attempt in City Parking Lot #7, on Figueroa Street between Anacapa and State streets.

There are few available details at the moment, but, based on scanner chatter, it appears a man dressed in an orange construction vest and blue jeans brandished a gun and demanded money from the kiosk attendant shortly after 4 p.m. As he fled, however, the suspect reportedly shed the vest and donned a different light-colored jacket.

A police department spokesperson wasn’t able to comment on the specifics of the incident, explaining responders are still out in the field, but he confirmed authorities are actively looking into reports of a gunman in the area.
