At approximately 10:30 p.m. on April 10, 2019, Sheriff’s deputies assigned to the Santa Maria Station attempted to locate a wanted person residing in the 1100 block of Via Alta in Orcutt. Earlier, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office advised this person may be headed to that location.
Deputies patrolling the area found the wanted person’s truck parked on the sidewalk and contacted 37-year-old Matthew Jeffers of Santa Maria. Jeffers had a no bail warrant out of San Luis Obispo and was arrested without incident.
Several bicycles, a welder and a set of golf clubs were found and booked for safekeeping due to questions as to ownership. Anyone with information on these items is invited to contact the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office (See below).
Jeffers was transported and booked into the Santa Barbara Main Jail on charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Appropriation of Lost Property with a bail of $10,000. Jeffers was also booked on a no bail warrant for violating the terms of his Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS).
