By Tris DeRoma

A Santa Cruz man who was arrested back in February with more than two ounces of heroin in his possession will have his case go to district court, according to court documents.
In February, Celso Ramos, 37, was arrested by police after he and a 29-year-old woman, Deanna Doss, were investigated for suspicious activity in a White Rock neighborhood.
According to police, the Ramos and Doss were observed by witnesses walking up and down driveways in a neighborhood in White Rock.
When police searched them, they found four loaded syringes filled with heroin in Ramos’ backpack. Ramos was charged with trafficking in controlled substances, (possess with intent to distribute, narcotic or meth, first offense), possession of a controlled substance, (felony narcotic drug) and use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
As of press time, Ramos’ court date has not been determined. If Ramos gets the maximum penalties for all three counts, he could be facing up to 10 years in jail and fines totaling up to $15,000
Doss was already sentenced by the court, having been charged with attempted trafficking (by possession with intent to distribute).
While being processed at the detention center, police found 1.8 grams of heroin and two bags of heroin, weighing a total of 9.5 grams.
