Alleged Heroin Dealer Arrested


Alleged heroin dealer Edgar Cordova, 28, and his girlfriend Alicia Marie Robles, 22, were arrested last week after a two-month investigation. Santa Barbara police, after seeing that Cordova had gone to the liquor store, searched their home on the 100 block of Nogal Drive and found Robles climbing out the bathroom window. Inside were 18 grams of heroin, a scale, and packing materials. Both were booked with $30,000 bails; Cordova, whom police believe to be part of a Santa Barbara gang, was also booked on a no-bail warrant for violating his “post-release community supervision” guidelines, related to an earlier burglary conviction.
