Drug Dealer Arrested
updated: Mar 26, 2014, 2:30 PM

Source: SBPD

A nearly three-month long narcotics investigation culminated with the arrest of Renee Albert Zuniga, age 31, of Ventura, for possession of heroin for sale and possession of methamphetamine for sale.

In January 2014 detectives from the Santa Barbara Police Department's Narcotics Unit initiated an investigation into Zuniga's narcotics activities. Investigation revealed that Zuniga, a parolee, was selling drugs to other dealers and to street level users in Santa Barbara County, including within the City of Santa Barbara. Investigation further revealed that he was storing his drugs at his place of employment, Beach Motor & Tires at 4897 Carpinteria Avenue in Carpinteria. On the morning of March 25, 2014 SBPD Narcotics detectives obtained a search warrant for that location. Assisted by a State Parole agent and a Santa Barbara County Sheriff's K-9 team, the detectives served the search warrant at 1:00 p.m. that afternoon and contacted Zuniga. Roughly 6 ounces of heroin and 9 grams of methamphetamine, valued at approximately $9000.00, were recovered from the premise. Additionally over $53,000.00 in cash, believed to be proceeds from drug sales, was seized.

Zuniga was arrested and booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on the aforementioned charges with a bail amount of $30,000.00. He was additionally booked on a no-bail parole hold.
