6 Arrested in Drug Bust

Anonymous tip spurred searches

FULLERTON – Law enforcement agencies often advertise the usage of anonymous tip lines in their effort to counteract criminal activity. The FPD recently received an anonymous tip that led to a large drug bust and six arrests.

Residences in the 200 block of W. Santa Fe and the 200 block of Orangefair Avenue were served search warrants on Thursday, May 11th.

The searches also resulted in the arrests of Andrew Zea (29), David Garcia (27), Denis Prado (24), Mickey Shulte (34), German Ortega (26), and Jocelyn Garcia (25).

Shulte was out on bail on an unrelated assault charge when he was arrested Thursday.
