Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office investigating early-morning robbery at Isla Vista store

ISLA VISTA, Calif. – The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office is investigating a robbery that occurred early Friday morning at the 7-Eleven store in Isla Vista.

Isla Vista Foot Patrol deputies were dispatched to the store, located on the 6500 block of Trigo Road, for a robbery just before 5:20 a.m. on Friday, said sheriff's spokeswoman Raquel Zick.

While the initial call said that the suspect had a firearm with him, that remained under investigation, she added.

The suspect fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash before deputies were able to arrive.

Deputies and a K9 units searched the nearby area, but were not successful in locating the suspect, Zick said.
