On September 20, 2016 investigators from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Special Investigations Bureau, Santa Barbara Regional Crime Abatement Team and the California Department of Justice, concluded a five-month investigation into the trafficking of methamphetamine.  On this date, investigators negotiated for the purchase and delivery of 20 pounds of methamphetamine to a location within the City of Goleta.
