The following is taken from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department commander's recap for the Santa Ynez Valley patrol. Those appearing as "arrested" have only been arrested on suspicion of the crime indicated and are presumed innocent.
Friday, April 6:
ARREST — A deputy on patrol at 2 a.m. in Buellton found Jose Quiroz of Nipomo sleeping in his car at Sycamore Drive and Dairy Way.
A records check revealed a warrant had been issued for Quiroz’s arrest in San Luis Obispo County, so he was taken into custody and booked into Santa Barbara County Jail.
His car was also impounded due to a high number of vehicle burglaries recently in that area.
INCIDENT — When a deputy stopped a vehicle with three occupants for not having registration in the 3400 block of East Highway 246 about 7:40 a.m., he discovered an arrest warrant had been issued for the driver, who was also on probation with full search terms.
A search of the vehicle allegedly turned up two hypodermic syringes and 0.72 grams of crystal methamphetamine, which the driver stated belonged to her.
She was issued a citation for suspicion of possessing a controlled substance, possessing paraphernalia for injecting a controlled substance and the warrant and was released.
INCIDENT — After another vehicle was stopped for not having registration in the 3400 block of East Highway 246 about 3:15 p.m., the deputy found a warrant had been issued for the arrest of the passenger.
When he was asked to step out of the car, he allegedly told the deputy he had a methamphetamine pipe in his pocket. He was subsequently issued a citation for suspicion of possessing paraphernalia for smoking a controlled substance and for the warrant and was released.
ARREST — About 8:45 p.m., deputies were called to a residence in the 3000 block of Calle Bonita in Los Olivos where they made contact with Brent Fox outside his house.
Fox allegedly became “extremely agitated” and defensive with deputies, and when they tried to remove him from the chair he was standing on inside the house, he allegedly resisted their orders.
He allegedly started kicking and punching deputies, which continued even after they had used stun guns to subdue him.
Fox was eventually taken into custody, medically cleared at the hospital and transported to jail, where he was booked on suspicion of resisting or obstructing arrest, resisting or interfering with a peace officer and battery on a peace officer.
