Halloween Eve Probation Sweep Nabs Eight

Santa Barbara – With the ghosts and goblins of Halloween preparing to run rampant through the land, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Gang Enforcement Unit got a jump on anything supernatural on Halloween Eve as they joined forces with the SBCO Probation Department in a city-wide operation intended to determine probation compliance among certain targeted individuals.

According to SBSD Public Information Officer Kelly Hoover, “teams made up of members from both law enforcement agencies served several violation of probation arrest warrants” which produced no less than eight individual arrests.

Among those who found the scariest night of the year was not Halloween were:

Debra Anaya

Marco Carlos, 18, who “jumped out of a window and attempted to flee” when deputies arrived to serve an outstanding arrest warrant. He was then arrested and booked for resisting and delaying a peace officer, as well as on the outstanding warrant.

Debra Anaya, 44, who was also wanted on an outstanding warrant and had “cut off her electronic monitoring bracelet”. She was arrested on the warrant as well as for new charges involving possession of a controlled substance and possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

Dylan Westcott

Dylan Wescott, 25, booked on an outstanding warrant as well as charges of possession a controlled substance and associated paraphernalia.

Tomas Torrez, also booked on an outstanding warrant as well as charges of possession a controlled substance and associated paraphernalia.

Four others—three adults and one juvenile—were also picked up and arrested on outstanding warrants, but as they did not incur any additional charges that fateful evening, their names have not been released.
