Sergio Garcia, 37, along with 55-year-old Curtis Hubbard and 32-year-old James Henning, all of Bakersfield were arrested for furnishing alcohol to a minor. Danny Macias, 26, of Bakersfield was also arrested for petty theft and obstructing and resisting a peace officer.

In a separate yet related sting operation in nearby Lamont, officers arrested 30-year-old David Castillo and 27-year-old Francisco Cruz Jr., both of Lamont, along with 23-year-old Arvin resident Marcos Mezabotello; all for furnishing alcohol to a minor decoy.

One operation was conducted in the south Bakersfield area of Kern County and the other operation was conducted in the Lamont area.
