The Grover Beach Police Department served a search warrant at a home suspected of being a drug-user hangout and arrested four people on a variety of charges.

About 4 p.m. Thursday, officers raided the house on the 1000 block of Nice Avenue with the help of several agencies and called a city building inspector, who red-tagged the home for code violations, Grover Beach police Sgt. Sonny Gerber said Friday.

Inside the home, officers allegedly found a “usable” amount of methamphetamine, paraphernalia, prescription pills and gang propaganda, the department said in a news release. Gerber did not have additional information on the alleged drugs.

Of the four arrested, Esteban Zuniga, 35, and Gustavo Trejo, 30, both of Grover Beach, were booked on a felony parole violation and being a felon in possession of a firearm, respectively. Both remained in custody Friday.

The two others were arrested on various misdemeanor charges related to drug possession and maintaining a residence that allows the sale and transportation of drugs. The Tribune does not identify people arrested solely on misdemeanor charges.

A woman was injured when she allegedly fled the house on foot. She was treated at a hospital and was not arrested.
