Details of News Release: On April 22, 2012 at 1:56 AM Sheriff’s deputies were responding to a call for service when they passed a small building that housed a fruit stand located in the 2800 Block of Cienaga Street in Oceano. As the deputies passed the business they saw a car parked at the side of the building, off of the street.
