Just before midnight on March 30, 2019, a Sheriff’s deputy on foot patrol in downtown Solvang contacted 29-year-old Erik Morales of Lompoc sitting inside a parked vehicle with an open bottle of beer. A subsequent search of his vehicle revealed 18 small plastic bags of cocaine, each weighing approximately one gram, hidden inside a cowboy boot.
