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.

Yeah, because "18 grams of heroin, a scale, and packing materials." seems like personal stash to you?

he's a good boy. he in no gang. he just trying to turn his life around.

Another fine outstanding "citizen" of Santa Barbara/Ca. Let's see...Just got out of prison, gang member, parole violation and heroin dealer. I read Edhat, Indy, News Press, Noozhawk etc. daily. Same folks committing 90% of all the crime in SB all the time. Gangs and transients/bums continue to degrade the lifestyle we have busted out buts to achieve. Sick of it.

Wow....BacktoSanity....someone who agrees with me.
I thought I was the only one who felt that way!
Thanks for not being someone who goes into denial mode
about what is happening in SB.

I know SezMe...just a poor misunderstood 28 yr old heroin dealing gang member with a criminal history. What's your take?? And don't worry Zuma MANY people agree with us. Especially the law abiding, hard working, tax paying legal citizens. That includes all the Hispanic hard working law abiding legal residence/citizens out there. Many of the hardest working nicest people I have met.

But not the hard working law abiding illegals, right?

Law abiding illegals? explain that concept to me.

The irony of course is that this 28 year old heroin dealer is employed by BacktoSanity and Zuma7 who support the war on drugs.

End the war on drugs, this guy doesn't have a job dealing drugs on the street anymore. Thanks for employing so many drug dealers guys. You're really helping the economy.

Oh and don't worry, nobody else will replace this guy selling heroin so the streets should be heroin free now. Yay! We just won the war on drugs! /sarcasm

I would say a 'law abiding illegal' is somebody who broke the law coming here but abides by the rest of our laws on a daily basis.

Immigration laws have got to be the height of having a sense of entitlement. Why do you deserve to live here and somebody else doesn't? Because of some arbitrary government edict, and then you use the excuse that because they traveled across an imaginary line they suddenly become a criminal even though they have never harmed anybody?

Now, obviously if our government is giving away handouts to anybody and everybody why wouldn't somebody from another country who doesn't have handouts come here for free handouts? That is a problem, but it's a separate problem.

My take, Backto Sanity? Read loonpt, above. Eliminate asinine drug laws and a) this guy won't be selling heroin because that's the only job he can find, and b) reduce the prison budget by half and use the money for job training, job support, etc. By doing so, you substantially reduce the drug dealing problem, the homeless problem and substantially increase the general happiness safety of individuals and society as a whole.

No charge.
