Sheriff’s Narcotics Detectives working an ongoing investigation served a search warrant yesterday at a hotel in the 1100-block of North H Street. During the search warrant service, detectives contacted 18-year-old Dillon Spoor of Santa Ynez and 21-year-old Moret Houston of Santa Ynez. When detectives contacted Spoor, he removed a gun from his waistband and tossed it onto the seat of a vehicle that he was standing near. Spoor was immediately detained and after up-close inspection, detectives determined that the gun was a replica. 

As a result of the search of the hotel room, Spoor was found to be in possession of cocaine and marijuana for sales as well as a loaded and unregistered functioning semi-automatic handgun (different from the one he tossed in the vehicle). Spoor was later booked at the Santa Barbara County Jail for possession of a controlled substance for sales (felony), possession of a firearm while addicted to narcotics (felony), possession of a controlled substance while armed (felony), possession of a firearm without a serial number (misdemeanor), and possession of marijuana for sales (misdemeanor). His bail is $50,000. 

Houston was found to have cocaine in her pocket and was released at the scene with a citation.

Time to get that pre-pubescent stash cut before his court appearance. The guys in the clink will be on him like flies on, well, you know.

Why does the SB Sheriff release the picture of an 18 year old when they never released the picture of their Lieutenant who injured 6 people driving drunk on the 154 in Sept. 2019?
