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.
