Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Bureau have arrested a Santa Maria man and seized a large amount of various illegal drugs.

On Thursday, August 4, 2022, at approximately 7:00 a.m., detectives served a search warrant at a residence in the 100-block of north Curryer Street. As a result of this warrant, detectives seized approximately 17,000 suspected counterfeit M30 fentanyl pills, 22.5 pounds of cannabis flower, 27 grams of MDMA or ecstasy, 218 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, three grams of cocaine and hundreds of acid tabs. 

Some of these dangerous narcotics were found in areas accessible to children who were residing in the residence. As a result, detectives arrest 21-year-old Victor Olivera-Hernandez and booked him at the Northern Branch Jail for child cruelty (felony), unlawful possession of ammunition (felony) and possession of narcotics for sales (felony). He is being held on an enhanced bail of $250,000.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public that fentanyl is one of the leading killers when it comes to drug overdoses in Santa Barbara County. To learn more about the overdose crisis in Santa Barbara County – click on the Project Opioid link at

Wish some effort had been put forth with the "successful" dealer next door to us, but no interest from SB detective. Glad the sheriff's office caught this dealer. Bravo. Tooany drugs here, & that means more homeless ,& more crime &moredeaths.
More arrests of dealers is imperative.
