May 10 – Santa Barbara County
Rory Michael Drummond, 37, was arrested early today on charges of domestic violence, felony criminal threats, felony possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and altering a replica firearm.
According to Drew Sugars, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Public Information Officer, “members of the department’s Special Enforcement Team” worked in conjunction with detectives investigating reports of a domestic violence incident occurring on April 27th at a residence in the north county community of Orcutt in making the arrest. Drummond was suspected of committing an assault upon a female at the residence, and of subsequently sending threats of further violence to her via text-messaging.
Because the purported victim reported to authorities that Drummond was in possession of multiple weapons and firearms, Sugars reported that “the suspect was considered to be high risk” requiring deployment of the Special Enforcement Team, a unit akin to other agencies’ SWAT units.
Drummond offered no resistance to arresting deputies, and he was taken into custody without incident. At the time of his arrest he was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and replicas of rifles and shotguns.
Drummond was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail with bail set at $50,000.
