A man arrested for selling heroin earlier this year was arrested again this week for the same offense. Santa Barbara resident, 29-year-old Randall Leong, was found with about 1/4 of an ounce of heroin prepackaged for sales in multicolored water balloons.
Leong was out of custody on bail from his January arrest when Sheriff's Narcotics Detectives received information that he was selling heroin again.
On Tuesday, October 22, detectives saw Leong driving northbound on Highway 101 through Carpinteria. Sheriff's Patrol Deputies were called to assist in a traffic stop. They completed a search of his car which yielded the prepackaged heroin.
Last January, Leong was found in possession of over one ounce of heroin after a search warrant was served on him and his car. He was consequentially booked in the County Jail, then released on bail.
His current bail is set at $100,000.
