Two men were arrested for allegedly trying to steal skateboards from a surf and skate shop in downtown Santa Cruz early Thursday morning, according to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 12:47 a.m. to O’Neill’s Surf Shop at 110 Cooper Street on the report of a commercial burglary. Two suspects smashed the front window of the shop, stole five skateboards and tried to flee, according to the sheriff’s office.
Witnesses provided descriptions of the suspects, Harley Dean, 19, and Daniel Hark, 25, who were both arrested after deputies found them hiding behind cars in a nearby parking lot. The skateboards were also found in a flower bed near the surf shop, sheriff’s officials said. Investigators collected surveillance footage that allegedly shows the pair committing the burglary. Santa Cruz County sheriff’s deputies were temporarily patrolling the city of Santa Cruz in the wake of the fatal shooting of two police officers there on Tuesday.
