Deputies in Montecito disaster zone investigate, arrest five people

Posted: Updated:

Santa Barbara County deputies say they arrested five people Tuesday following a traffic stop in the Montecito disaster zone.

Deputies said at around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, they found an SUV leaving Coast Village Road and stopped it for "observed vehicle code violations."

"It was discovered the ignition was 'punched' and the vehicle was being driven with a tool," Kelly Hoover, a public information officer with the sheriff's office, wrote in a press release.

Suspecting the SUV was stolen, deputies ordered the three people inside to get out. They say 30-year-old Frank Clark of Port Hueneme, a convicted felon out on AB109 Post-Release Community Supervision, was driving. His passengers, 46-year-old Michael Reardon of Santa Barbara and 32-year-old James Wilson of Camarillo, had outstanding warrants for their arrests, according to investigators.

Deputies searched the SUV and found loose ammunition. They continued the investigation, tracing the three to a Santa Barbara hotel. At the hotel were two suspected associates, 36-year-old Victor Rodriguez of Ventura and 34-year-old Collin Moore of Oxnard, who also had outstanding warrants for their arrests.

Deputies searched the room and found a Glock handgun, high-capacity magazines and more ammunition that they later determined to be stolen during a Port Hueneme burglary.
