Federal Drug Charges Levied Against Five

Five men said to have links to Santa Barbara’s Eastside Gang were arrested on October 4 on state and federal charges of narcotics distribution.

Arrested were Sergio Diaz, 36, for distribution of cocaine; Javier Zamudio, 32, on cocaine sales and criminal gang participation; and Adrian Alejandre, 29, methamphetamine distribution, all of Santa Barbara. Arrested in Lompoc were Dennis Cummings, 22, and Robert Sullivan-Seher, 48, for conspiracy and meth distribution.
