ARREST — Two people were arrested after they allegedly tried to impersonate their siblings at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez.

Deputies on foot patrol in the parking structure encountered a man and woman getting out of a vehicle. The man identified himself as Christian Peretiako and said he was on county probation with search and seizure conditions included in the terms, while the woman said she was Angela Meeks.

Both subjects were detained while a probation search was carried out, and deputies allegedly found Meeks in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
