The ten-year search for a fugitive Santa Barbara woman accused of running a whorehouse ended Tuesday when detectives caught up with her outside her Oakland residence.

Detectives working for the Santa Barbara Police Dept. arrested Susan Mangan at approximately 6 p.m. on November 11 as she left her home in Oakland, California. The investigation into Mangan began in 1998 when a report of a home invasion robbery led detectives to uncover a prostitution ring within the house. Mangan, who was 48 at the time, was identified as one of the individuals in charge of running the prostitution house, and a warrant was issued for her arrest. She subsequently fled the city and successfully eluded authorities for a decade.

Mangan is charged with pimping, pandering and keeping a house of Ill Fame.

Details concerning how she eluded capture have not been released, but the investigation is continuing as to possible charges of identity theft.

While the Santa Barbara Police Dept. – in coordination with the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office – has had an open investigation into the whereabouts of Mangan since 1998, detectives did not pick up her trail until this summer, when they received information that she was living in Oakland under several aliases.

Mangan, now 58, has been transported back to Santa Barbara and booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail. Her bail has been set at $2 million.

A search warrant has also been obtained for her Oakland home.
