Santa Ynez man arrested in Lompoc for alleged gun, drug violations

Dillon Spoor


A search warrant related to an ongoing narcotics investigation resulted in the arrest of a Santa Ynez man at a Lompoc hotel Wednesday on suspected gun and drug violations, a Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said.

During the search warrant service, Sheriff’s Office narcotics detectives contacted 18-year-old Dillon Spoor and 21-year-old Moret Houston, both of Santa Ynez, at a hotel in the 1100 block of North H Street, said spokeswoman Raquel Zick. 

When detectives contacted Spoor, he removed a gun from his waistband and tossed onto the seat of a nearby vehicle, but the gun turned out to be a replica, Zick said.

Detectives searched the hotel room and allegedly discovered Spoor in possession of a loaded, unregistered semiautomatic handgun along with cocaine and marijuana, Zick said.

Cocaine was allegedly found in Houston’s pocket, and she was released at the scene with a citation, Zick added. 

Spoor was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of a firearm while addicted to narcotics, possession of a controlled substance while armed, possession of a firearm without a serial number and possession of marijuana for sale. His bail was set at $50,000.
