Wanted man arrested following standoff in Goleta apartment

GOLETA, Calif. - A wanted suspect was apprehended on Monday after he barricaded himself in a Goleta apartment.

Jacob Dreyer, 28, of Carpinteria was wanted for violating the terms of his probation. At around 2:15 p.m., probation officers from the AB 109 Compliance Response Team (CRT) began looking for Dreyer and found him later in the afternoon on the 300 block of Mathilda Drive in Goleta.

Probation officers attempted to arrest Dreyer but he ran on foot, leading to a short pursuit. Dreyer ran into the apartment of an acquaintance and barricaded himself inside.

Law enforcement set up a perimeter, issued a shelter in place alert to nearby residents and made announcements to Dreyer to surrender. 

Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office detectives, two K9 units and deputies assigned to the Goleta Valley Patrol Station responded to assist with the situation.

Law enforcement continued to receive no response after repeated announcements and phone calls into the apartment. Eventually, they beached the front door and removed Dreyer from the apartment.

Dreyer was taken into custody and booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail on his no bail warrant related to breaking the terms of his probation.
