In the third assault in two months to rock the Isla Vista community, an arsonist apparently firebombed the Isla Vista Foot Patrol office late Sunday night. Someone threw a device, â€œsimilar to a Molotov cocktail,â€? which hit the building around 11:40 p.m, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriffâ€™s Department.
Authorities said there were people inside the building, 6504 Trigo Road, at the time of the attack, but the bomb didnâ€™t injure anyone. The building sustained only minor damage. Sheriff spokesman Sgt. Brad McVay said the Sheriffâ€™s office would launch an investigation â€” later in the week, after support staff return from holiday furlough.
The building serves as headquarters for law enforcement in one of the most densely populated unincorporated areas of the county. It also provides a center for community relations between the Sheriffâ€™s office and Isla Vistaâ€™s substantial student population. This marks the second attack on the building in less than three months. On See BOMB, page 12

Police arrest man who allegedly threatened pastor CRIME BLOTTER
BY NICK C. TONKIN
DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
Dec. 17, 3:51 p.m.: A traffic stop got two men arrested for drug possession. An officer pulled over a vehicle after seeing an expired registration sticker. The 33-year-old driver had a suspended license and no proof of insurance. Both the driver and the 30-year-old passenger had burnt spoons, syringes, and other drug paraphernalia. The passenger advised officers to be careful searching the vehicle because there were several uncapped needles near the car seats. He added, “I’m not a bad guy, I just have a problem.” Both men were arrested for possession and booked into county jail on $10,000 bail for the driver and no bail for the passenger due to a probation violation. Dec. 16, 5:10 p.m.: Police arrested a 42year old man for allegedly shooting a car with a sling shot. The owner of the car allegedly left work with another man and saw the suspect staring at him. The suspect then allegedly put a rock into a sling shot and fired it at the car. The two men got out and detained the suspect, who allegedly continued to brandish the sling shot, until police arrived. The man was
arrested for brandishing a weapon and throwing an item at a car, and booked into county jail on $2,500 bail.

MAKING ITALIANS ITALIANS OUT OF SANTA SANT A BARBARANS FOR 54 YEARS.
Dec. 16, 9:45 a.m.: A man walking around the railroad tracks got caught with stolen credit and ID cards. An officer saw the 51-year-old man walking within three feet of the railroad tracks near the 300 block of Castillo Street. When contacted, the man became uncooperative and the officer arrested him for trespassing on the tracks. A search of the man found lipstick, a woman’s debit card and Social Security card, and a MasterCard belonging to a different woman. The man claimed the items, “Belong to some woman who was ripped off by Smart and Final.” The MasterCard’s bank confirmed that the card was still active and had been used recently. That added possession of stolen property to the man’s charges and landed him in county jail on $20,000 bail. Dec 15, 10:20 a.m.: Police arrested a 54year-old man after he threatened a pastor at an Eastside church. The suspect had allegedly called the pastor See BLOTTER, page 9

Police arrest L.A. arson suspect
THE RESTAURANT GUY
The Best of 2012
ERE ARE THE WINNERS of the SantaBarbara.com Restaurant Guide online poll that ran last December. The results will be displayed on SantaBarbara.com throughout 2012. Survey participants considered 110 different food & drink categories. New categories this year include: Best Sushi, Best Fish & Chips, Best Food Truck, Best DriveIn, Best Buellton Restaurant, Best JOHN Solvang Restaurant DICKSON and Best Place To Bring Your Pet. Winners of 3 or more awards (including first place or finalist) are: bouchon (6), Brewhouse (5), Brophy Bros (5), Fresco Cafe (4), Opal Restaurant and Bar (4), Renaud's Patisserie & Bistro (4), Whole Foods Market (4), Alcazar Tapas Bar (3), Bella Vista (3), Cajun Kitchen (3), Mac's Fish & Chip Shop (3), Natural Cafe (3), Pascucci (3), Sojourner Cafe (3) and Wine Cask (3). New restaurants that received awards are: Cadiz, Cafe Stella, Cecco Ristorante, Killer B BBQ and Bar, O Street Truck and Scarlett Begonia.
Police arrested a man on Monday in connection with a wave of 53 arson fires targeting cars and structures, which caused more than $2 million in damages and left nerves in the secondlargest U.S. city badly frayed. Police declined to identify the man but said he was taken into custody in Hollywood early Monday morning after a sheriff's deputy spotted him driving a van similar to one being sought in connection with the fires. Los Angeles City Fire Department Captain Jamie Moore said at a press briefing the suspect resembled a "person of interest" caught on surveillance videotape near several of the arsons. That person was described by police as a male with a light complexion wearing dark clothing and a ponytail. TOP CATEGORIES: Authorities declined to discuss the arrest in further detail but • Best Overall Restaurant: bouchon said they would release more information at a late-afternoon 9 W. Victoria St, Finalist: Opal press conference. Restaurant and Bar • Best New Restaurant in 2011: Cafe Stella 3302 McCaw Ave, Finalist: Hundreds of anti-Wall Street protesters sought to upstage the Scarlett Begonia 123rd Tournament of Roses parade on Monday but were largely confined to the sidelines. Several hundred protesters marched in a "human float" that followed behind the official parade, unfurling a 250-foot banner of the constitution and also displayed an approximately 70-foot octopus made of recycled plastic grocery bags. "Everything is not coming up roses," one protester's sign said. Another read, "This is what Democracy looks like." Onlookers were allowed to walk along the parade route behind the official floats, so the protesters were joined by thousands of spectators and even a handful of counter-protesters, one of whom admonished the protesters to "get a job" on his megaphone.

Navy pilots killed in San Diego
Two Navy pilots were among four people killed in an apparent New Years Day murder-suicide on the wealthy island of Coronado off the coast of San Diego, officials said on Monday. The two were F/A-18 pilots training at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, the base said. The San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office initially posted on its website that the both were male, and both 25 years old. The Medical Examiner's information said the third deceased man was a 31-year-old resident of nearby Chula Vista. The Office later took the information off the website. Authorities in Coronado, a wealthy island enclave off the coast of San Diego, were called to a condo shortly after 2 a.m. on Sunday to investigate a report of shots fired at the residence, according to the sheriff's department.

Surf’s up in SB BY NICK C. TONKIN
DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
Surf’s going up for Santa Barbara this Thursday. The National Weather Service is predicting that a storm in the Pacific could send waves as high as eight feet Santa Barbara’s way between Thursday and Saturday. David Sweet, meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said these “surf events” are caused by offshore storms that generate swells that travel across large expanses of the oceanuntil they hit land and are common during winter months. Sweet said most surf events in the Pacific send swells in a northwest direction. Because of California’s geography, Santa Barbara’s
coastline is shielded from these waves by Point Conception. “Many times Santa Barbara is protected from high surf events,” Sweet said. But this recent storm in the Central Pacific kicked off further south than normal, which makes swells “refract” around Point Conception and sends larger waves towards the Santa Barbara coast. “This system was in a place where the waves generated have better access to the Santa Barbara area,” Sweet said. But Santa Barbara will still be sheltered compared to areas outside of the county. Sweet estimates west-facing beaches in parts of Ventura and Los Angeles could see 10-foot waves as early as today and up to 20 feet later in the week.
