Heroin arrest made as part of 'white supremacist' probe in San Diego County
An Oceanside man on probation for drug offenses has been arrested as part of an investigation into the role of white-supremacists in dealing heroin in northern San Diego County, the Sheriff's Department said Friday.
Kevin Kelly, 26, was taken into custody in connection with the sale of heroin in a residential neighborhood, the Sheriff's Department said. He had been under surveillance after leaving court in Vista after a hearing on a previous case.
A search of his apartment turned up drugs worth $18,000, the department said.
Kelly was booked into county jail in Vista. Two persons at his home during a search were booked on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs.
