Two men were arrested Thursday night after they were caught breaking into a Montecito home, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office. 

Deputies were called to the 200 block of Gould Lane around 9 p.m. 

A Montecito resident reportedly heard strange noises coming from a child's bedroom. Sheriff's officials say those noises were coming from one of the men. The resident reportedly yelled at the intruder, which scared him and caused him to take off. 

Deputies say they quickly found the man, identified as 25-year-old Frank James Showell of Lancaster, and a second man, identified as 29-year-old Donyae Dixon of Los Angeles. 

The sheriff's office says both men were taken to jail on burglary and conspiracy charges. Showell also faces a charge of false personation. 

Their bail is set at $50,000 each. 

The sheriff's office says this is a good example of why everyone affected by the recent disasters should keep a watchful eye on their neighborhood and report all suspicious activity to police.
