Arroyo Grande police received reports of each of the burglaries occurring in the 1000 block of Grand Avenue from Nov. 19 through Nov. 21. Investigators acquired surveillance video of the incidents, which showed a male suspect and a getaway vehicle.

On Saturday, officers located the vehicle while it was parked on the block where the burglaries occurred. When Donald Bruce Folb, 49 got back in his car and took off, officers pulled him over.

The officers searched Folb’s vehicle and found several stolen goods from the burglaries.

Police arrested Folb for commercial burglary and possession of stolen property. They also determined that he was on active probation.

Folb is currently in San Luis Obispo County Jail on $40,000 bail.

If he took less than 950.00 in each burglary along with the possession of stolen property,

I wonder if he would be charged with a misdemeanor for each case thanks to our new

Prop 47. If so, he should be out in time to clean out a few more homes during the holiday


Thanks to the AG Police’s quick work, they were able to take him into custody before he robbed more businesses.

stupid is as stupid does.

On probation, figures. The same people commit the same crimes again and again.

Cut off his hands so he can’t steal anymore.

Meth will make you do things….you never dreamed you would do….

We are so blessed to have the AGPOA!!!!!! Good job!

Not to be grumpy. But, “blessed?” We have the AGPOA because we pay them to protect us and our community They’re not a charitable organization. I have high regard for their dedication and hard work, but I don’t think our Fire Dept. is using holy water in their hoses either. I need more coffee.

Folb is such a wonderful person, no doubt his family is so very proud of him.
