Fentanyl, Cocaine Seized in Santa Monica Narcotics Arrest

Two Santa Monica residents arrested. 

By Staff Writer 

$47,000 worth of fentanyl and cocaine was seized by the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) in an arrest today. 

On March 19, the SMPD’s Narcotics Unit and Crime Impact Team served a search warrant at a residence in the 1400 block of 11th Street in Santa Monica for narcotics sales activity. 

During the execution of the search warrant, which included a vehicle and persons of interest in the investigation, detectives recovered approximately 9 ounces of fentanyl (street value of $40,000), approximately 2.5 ounces of powdered cocaine (street value of $7,000), over $12,000 in US currency and other indicators of narcotic sales. 

Based on the evidence recovered and preliminary investigation, detectives arrested a male and female for their involvement in narcotic sales. Shane Michael Spring, a 36-year-old male from Santa Monica, was booked for 11351 H&S – possession of narcotics for the purpose of sales. Sasha Carrillo, a 33-year-old female from Santa Monica, was booked for 11351 H&S – possession of narcotics for the purpose of sales. Nationally, fentanyl has become the leading cause of illegal narcotics-related overdose deaths amongst substance abusers.

Detectives will be presenting the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration. Anyone with information related to narcotic activity in the City of Santa Monica is encouraged to call the anonymous Narcotics Tip Line at (310) 458-2292; or the Santa Monica Police Department at (310) 458-8491.
