Julius Perdomo

Julius Perdomo was driving through Isla Vista playing music loudly from his vehicle on Friday, January 17th.  Members of the Isla Vista Foot Patrol pulled him over and found a large quantity of marijuana inside the car.  They also discovered evidence of potential narcotic sales.  He was immediately arrested at the scene.

UCSB Police officers and Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies assigned to the IVFP conducted further investigation of Perdomo.  The 25-year old male had a  girlfriend who stayed at his residence near the corner of Camino Del Sur and El Colegio Road.  Suspecting that the girlfriend might also be involved in the sales of narcotics, authorities were able to get a search warrant.

Sarah Pet, 23, was taken into custody after deputies discovered 58-pounds of marijuana, about one pound of psilocybin mushrooms, and approximately 1.5-ounces of concentrated cannabis.  Psilocybin mushrooms are also known on the streets as Shrooms, Magic Mushrooms, and Psychedelic Mushrooms.  This drug, which is ingested by individuals orally,  causes episodes of hallucinations and alters the users reality perception according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Deputies also found $17,000 cash, as well as two safe-deposit keys on the premises.  More search warrants were issued to inspect the safe-deposit boxes.

Authorities discovered an additional mountain of cash, in total about $93,000.  On Tuesday, January 21st, the bank accounts of the couple were also examined.  They found an extra $16,000 from that source.  In total, there was $127,000 seized.

Both Perdomo and Pet are being charged with possession of marijuana and psilocybin mushroom for sales.  They were taken to Santa Barbara County Jail.  The bail bond amount for Perdomo was set at $30,000.  Pet was released from custody on her own recognizance.
