ORCUTT, Calif. -- One person is in custody after the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office responded to an interrupted residential burglary near Orcutt.

It happened just before 9 a.m. on Friday morning on the 4200 block of Dominion Road.

A Sheriff's Deputy was patrolling the area of Dominion Road when he noticed a car parked outside of a residence known to be vacant.

When the deputy approached the house, two suspects ran out the backside of the house and into a neighboring agriculture field.

CHP then sent units to help search for the suspects including the Santa Barbar County Air Support Unit and a Sheriff's K9.

20 minutes later, deputies took 41-year-old Joseph Julian Martinez from Arroyo Grande into custody.

The second suspect is still at large and is described as a Hispanic male, 5' 7" tall with short hair and wearing a gold Chicago Bulls jacket and blue jeans.

The suspect was last seen headed southwest away from the residence.

Martinez was arrested and booked at the Lompoc Jail under charges of burglary, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of burglary tools and prowling. His bail is set at $20,000.
