The following is taken from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department media report for the Santa Ynez Valley patrol.

Those appearing as "arrested" have only been arrested on suspicion of the crime indicated and are presumed innocent.

Tuesday, May 25:

INCIDENT — A man reported at 9:30 a.m. that he parked his vehicle at the Gaviota Peak trailhead and returned later to find someone had broken out a window and stolen his wallet and truck keys.

Purchases totaling more than $934 were later made using his credit card at USA Gas and Tanner’s Cove in Buellton and Walmart in Santa Maria.

ARREST — After deputies stopped a vehicle that appeared to be operated by an impaired driver about 5:15 p.m. on Faraday Street in Santa Ynez, driver Ian George Robertson allegedly performed poorly on field sobriety tests.

He allegedly showed blood alcohol levels of 0.22% and 0.24% on breath analyses and was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol level greater than 0.08%. He was booked at Santa Barbara County Jail.

ARREST — Deputies were called to the Chumash Casino Resort about 6 p.m. to assist security guards with a woman they said was highly intoxicated and combative.

When the suspect, Ma De Los Angeles Olmedo-Ramirez, was asked a series of questions to determine her level of intoxication, she allegedly responded with an expletive referring to the deputy’s mother.

She was subsequently arrested and booked at Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of public intoxication.

ARREST — About 10:50 p.m., Chumash Casino Resort security guards requested assistance with a man they said was extremely intoxicated, and deputies contacted Christopher Stiegler in the valet parking area.

Deputies said Stiegler displayed obvious symptoms of intoxication, but no one was available to take care of him. He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and taken to Santa Barbara County Jail.

Wednesday, May 26:

INCIDENT — Investigators planned to review surveillance video from Firestone Brewery in Buellton to identify someone who stole a newly installed Jensen CMM10 stereo, valued at $249, from a motorhome parked on Thomas Road to the rear of the business.

The motorhome owner told deputies he saw a man walking to a Nissan Altima parked nearby and driving away quickly about 9 p.m. the day before.

ARREST — Deputies conducting a premises check of the Chumash Casino Resort parking garage about 3:30 p.m. encountered a man and woman, and a records check showed a felony no-bail arrest warrant and a $15,000 misdemeanor arrest warrant had been issued by Santa Barbara County for the man, identified as Paul Steadman.

Multiple misdemeanor arrest warrants had been issued for the woman by San Luis Obispo County but were not extraditable.

In a probable cause search of their vehicle, deputies allegedly located methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, which the woman claimed were hers. She was cited for suspicion of possessing a controlled substance and possessing paraphernalia and was released.

Steadman was arrested on his warrants and booked at Santa Barbara County Jail.

INCIDENT — After a deputy discovered an unoccupied vehicle stopped in the roadway at Nina Place and Dawn Drive in Buellton, he found a used methamphetamine pipe in plain view in the driver’s seat.

He contacted the registered owner at his nearby residence, and the man allegedly admitted the pipe was his.

A probation search of the vehicle allegedly yielded two bags of suspected methamphetamine in the glove box, and the man was cited for suspicion of possessing a controlled substance and possessing paraphernalia for smoking a controlled substance.

Tuesday, May 27:

INCIDENT — A Santa Ynez Feed and Milling Co. employee reported about 4:30 p.m. that a man entered the store and stole a tan Yeti Tundra 45 Hard Cooler valued at $300.

The man was described as Hispanic, about 6 feet tall and weighing about 250 pounds and wearing a tan button-up shirt, blue jeans and orange gloves. He was associated with a white Chrysler 300 with black rims.

ARREST — Deputies were called to the Coast Range bar in the 1600 block of Mission Drive in Solvang about 11:45 p.m. for a highly intoxicated woman and encountered Madeline Celia Chais.

Chais allegedly refused to cooperate with deputies and said they were “all racists” and “hit women.”

She was subsequently arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and was taken to Lompoc Jail.

Saturday, May 29:

INCIDENT — Deputies contacted a Guadalupe man sitting in his vehicle in the Chumash Casino Resort self-parking structure and found he was on probation for driving under the influence.
