Santa Barbara Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a former SBCC student wanted on charges of theft and burglary. Mackenzie Long, 21, was taken into custody November 21 at a party in Isla Vista.

The Sheriff’s Office had issued a public notice four days earlier that Long recently passed a bad $20,000 check to buy a car, and that she was involved in a home burglary in Isla Vista. Long’s Facebook photos were distributed to the media, and detectives asked those with information on her alleged crimes to contact their tip line.

Long, who is from the Stockton area and has ties to Isla Vista and Los Angeles, was booked into County Jail. She has since posted bail.
