Chumash Casino Drug Busts - Tip of the iceberg

Keep in mind this Casino is less than a mile from the high school in the Santa Ynez Valley. Keep in mind many kids from that high school have been in the casino - no one checks ID upon entry. And now you have a 17 year old kid buying meth AT the casino. Nice neighbors they have there in Santa Ynez. And these cretins want to expand their gambling operation? From the police blotter in the SYV Journal:

2-27
Arrest
Unit block of Bobcat Springs, Buellton

A 17-year-old male from Buellton was arrested for being in possession of methamphetamine after a citizen reported that she found methamphetamine in her son’s jacket pocket. She also told the officer that her son was on probation for other offenses and was routinely checking his room to make sure he didn’t have any contraband. The minor was questioned at the Solvang Sheriff’s Station, where he told police that he bought the methamphetamine from an acquaintance at the Chumash Casino. He informed police that he frequented the casino, even though he was not of legal age. He was booked into the Santa Maria Juvenile Hall for being in possession of a controlled substance.

My daughter, in elementary school, recently did a science project titled "What Happens When Casinos Come?" The statistics and increase in crime, drugs and violence is alarming - and draining our American tax dollars and dumping into sovereign nations (Tribal Casinos). Even our youth is watching the destruction of our communities through loss of small business all the way down to early drug addiction.
