Drug Dealing Car Caper In Sutter Creek

Drug Dealing Car Caper In Sutter Creek

Sutter Creek Police have an important reminder for people-don’t leave your car running and unattended…someone may take it on a drug run. According to the SCPD, an overnight visitor to the city left her car running and unattended. When she went outside, the car was gone. A Sutter Creek PD officer found out that there were electronic devices in the car when it was stolen, so they tracked it to Watsonville and contacted the Watsonville PD. They found the car unoccupied and kept an eye on it. Mario Cortez was taken into custody when he returned to the car. Cortez said he watched the car running unoccupied in Sutter Creek for about 10 minutes then decided to take it and make a run to Santa Cruz to buy some drugs and then head to Watsonville. He was arrested on several charges.
