Deputies served Herbes with a search warrant and found a ¼ ounce of meth in his vehicle. He was booked in County Jail for possessing and transporting a controlled substance with intent to sell. His bail was set at $55,000.

On Wednesday, Detectives arrested 24-year-old Goleta resident Christopher Krueger for possession of and intent to sell cocaine and ecstasy. Detectives served Krueger with a search warrant at a Goleta residence and found ¼ ounce of cocaine, several ecstasy pills, packaging supplies, and other drug paraphernalia. He was booked in County Jail with a $30,000 bail.
