Ventura Man Arrested on Drug Charges

After a five-month investigation, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s narcotics detectives arrested a  Ventura man suspected of selling cocaine in Santa Barbara

Ivan Flores, 33, was arrested on March 21 by narcotics detectives who conducted a search in a home on the 1400 block of San Andres St. in Santa Barbara and found Flores to be in possession of more than one ounce of cocaine for sale. Another search conducted at Flores’ home found half a kilo of cocaine, one pound of processed marijuana and about $28,000 in cash.


The half kilo of cocaine was found in Flores’ daughter’s bedroom, and in addition the residence was within 1,000 feet of a local school.

Flores was arrested and charged with possession and transportation of cocaine for sale, possession of more than one ounce of marijuana, child endangerment, and possession of a controlled substance for sale within 1,000 feet of a school. Flores is being held in the Santa Barbara County Jail on $150,000 bail.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
