Deputies arrested a San Luis Obispo teen last week who allegedly advertised the narcotics he was selling on Snapchat.

In February, multiple law enforcement agencies began investigating 19-year-old Josue Lopez, who they discovered was using Snapchat to advertise narcotics and facilitate sales.

On June 15, SLO police officers, SLO County deputies and probation officers raided Lopez’ home in the 1500 block of Madonna Road in SLO. Investigators seized a variety of narcotics, two non-serialized handguns and approximately $14,000 in cash.

The narcotics included 23 grams of Ecstasy tablets, 33 grams of counterfeit Oxycodone Hydrochloride, 30 tablets containing Fentanyl and Acetaminophen, 1.95 grams of counterfeit Acetaminophen and Oxycodone Hydrochloride pills containing Fentanyl and 2 grams of counterfeit Alprazolam (Xanax) pills containing Etizolam

Investigators arrested Lopez for possession of a narcotic controlled substance for sale and being armed while committing a felony.

1500 block of Madonna Road = SLO Housing Authority project, a nest of crime for 4 decades since it was built. Max. rent = one-third of your report-able income. The less report-able income the better.

I always thought it was a great idea to put all the low income people into the same housing facility.


Put down a whole area of our community that apparently y’all know way too much something about. So, know this how? Y’all buying whatchawant???

So your solution? Let’s kick them out on the streets … oops, the homeless are even more objectionable.

Why don’t you move to a gated community, some place else?
