More Point Sal Hiking Trail “Smash-n-Grab” car burglaries

A popular Northern Santa Barbara County hiking spot has been hit by burglars again. Last month the Sheriff’s Office nabbed two people accused of breaking into cars parked at Point Sal Hiking Trail.

On Sunday, Brandon Lambert and his buddy Daniel Waddle brought their families to Point Sal Hiking Trail, hoping to make some lifelong memories for their kids – but they didn’t expect those memories to include broken glass and stolen belongings when they returned to their cars.

Lambert estimates he has about $2,000 in losses – including purses, cell phones, keys, ID’s and even a diaper bag. Despite the damage to their cars, Lambert says he forgives the people who did this.

“Doesn’t mean that it’s ok.. but the only way you’re going to have peace in your heart is by forgiving them,” burglary victim Brandon Lambert said.

“There was a bunch of glass on the ground.. they chucked a rock through the window.. and there was all kinds of shattered glass,” burglary victim Daniel Waddle said.

The Sheriff’s Office says to never leave valuables in your car, even if they’re concealed.
