Jacob Lightig, age 19, of Encinitas, CA, was arrested for multiple charges, including residential burglary, driving under the influence of alcohol, fleeing the scene of a traffic collision and grand theft auto.First thought was that this was another messed-up Encinitas trustafarian like that girl from the D Street Bar & Grill stabbing, but there's not much record of a Lightig family in Encinitas, so maybe just a short-timer passing through.
On Wednesday, April 8, 2015, at approximately 10:00 a.m., a male suspect entered a residence in the 600 block of Ocean Ave. in Seal Beach through an open garage door. The suspect stole a car from the location using keys found in the residence. Witnesses called the Seal Beach Police Department to report the auto theft, which prompted a radio broadcast to all law enforcement agencies in Orange County to be on the lookout for the stolen car. At approximately 4:30 p.m., several hours after the vehicle was taken, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department received a call of a hit-and-run traffic collision in the City of Dana Point. The vehicle drove a short distance further and the driver exited the car. The witness followed the driver and directed responding Deputies to Lightig, who was arrested without incident.
Lightig sustained minor injuries as a result of the traffic collision. The vehicle sustained major damage. Lightig was booked into the Orange County Jail on charges of residential burglary, driving under the influence of alcohol, fleeing the scene of a traffic collision and grand theft auto.
