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.
