Public Assistance Requested to Locate Convicted Felon on Active Flight From Authorities


Lompoc - February 9th, 2017


The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is requesting public assistance to locate a convicted felon who is at large and may be armed and dangerous.  At approximately 6:00 a.m. this morning, February 9, 2017, the Compliance Response Team (CRT) attempted to contact 32-year-old Carlos Davis from Bakersfield at a Vandenberg Village residence on Jupiter Avenue near Constellation Way.  The CRT team which is made up Sheriff’s Deputies, County Probation Officers and a Lompoc Police Officer, had information that Davis was renting the upstairs bedroom at the residence and was in violation of the terms of his AB109 Post-Release Community Supervision.  He has a no bail felony warrant for his arrest. They also had information that Davis was at the residence shortly prior to their arrival.


When CRT personnel responded to the home to serve a search and arrest warrant, the homeowner was inside.  Davis’ upstairs bedroom was locked and he did not respond to commands to come out. Due to his prior weapons violations and information that Davis may be barricaded inside the locked bedroom, the homeowner was escorted out to safety and the Sheriff’s Special Enforcement Team was deployed.  Sheriff’s Detectives with the Special Investigations Bureau, a Sheriff’s K9 team as well as personnel from County Probation, the Lompoc Police Department and California Highway Patrol responded to assist.  As a precautionary measure, at approximately 7:00 a.m., an emergency notification was sent to neighbors in the surrounding area instructing them to shelter in place.  Maple High School was advised of the law enforcement activity and school administrators placed the school on lockdown.


At approximately 9:30 a.m., Special Enforcement Team members forced entry into the upstairs bedroom and determined the suspect was not inside.  Sheriff’s Detectives and members of CRT searched the bedroom and found an assault rifle, three handguns, loaded high capacity magazines and numerous rounds of various caliber ammunition. As a convicted felon, Davis is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition.  Law enforcement also found narcotics and drug paraphernalia inside the bedroom.


The CRT team is actively looking for Davis and is asking anyone who sees him or has information on his whereabouts to call 9-1-1 immediately.  If you see him, do not approach him but contact law enforcement.


The Sheriff’s Office has learned that Carlos Davis is likely driving a 2002 shiny, black Toyota Celica with a matte black hood possibly with “ING” stickers on the vehicle.  The vehicle has a California license plate of 4UNH291.  If you see the vehicle, please report it by calling 911.
