Way to go Law Enforcement getting that vile substance off the streets. Santa Maria needs to reverse its descent into the drug-crime-gang pit.

Poor Santa Maria. So many gangs and people pushing drugs. There are many good people there but once the criminal element takes root the whole community suffers. The future of all of california.

Smart to keep a stolen vehicle at your house, hard to hide it. Glad they got this guy and his speed off the street.
