Tony Estrada, Santa Cruz County Sheriff, says the Sheriff’s Dept. usually winds up with much of the contraband that’s seized as a result of the drug smuggling activity in the area. He says much of it is marijuana and cocaine. He says “samples” are retained as evidence and the rest is ultimately burned. He says much of the contraband is accumulated as a result of work by the Metro Area Narcotics Task Force.
