On May 14, 2019, members of the Sheriff’s Special Investigations Bureau (SIB) served a search warrant at a residence in the 300-block of S. Voluntario Street in Santa Barbara.

Prior to serving the search warrant, a traffic stop was conducted on 26-year-old Jaime Orozco of Santa Barbara in the 100 block of West Cabrillo Boulevard in the City of Santa Barbara. During the traffic stop, Detectives located more than $4,000 in cash on Orozco and in his vehicle. While searching the vehicle, Detectives located items of indicia consistent with narcotics sales. 

During a subsequent search of his residence in the 300-block of S. Voluntario Street, Detectives located four semi-automatic handguns with ammunition. One of the firearms located did not have a serial number, as required by California Law, commonly referred to as a “ghost gun.” Detectives then executed a search warrant in the 800 block of Cliff Drive at another residence associated with Oro zco and located approximately 2.2 ounces of cocaine, worth an estimated street value of $2,400. 

Detectives arrested Orozco for possession for sales of a controlled substance and possession of a firearm without a serial number. He is being held on $30,000 bail at the Santa Barbara County Jail.

I see some ones and fives in the photo to make it look impressive. They must have emptied his wallet. They say "$4000 in cash" - It looks like most of that money did not make the photo shoot.

I like the artful mug shot, which highlights his lower Captain Ahab, double over-lip pencil "stache", and the Muppett eyebrows. Maybe the sisters can do something with those mupps when his in jail.

It's always fun to see the artful photos of the "take," with the money fanned out, drugs displayed and guns placed just so. There should be an exhibit of these photos. Or perhaps enlarged photos lining the walls of the Sheriff's and Police departments.
