SANTA CRUZ — A man shot during an alleged drug deal gone bad last month was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of robbing a pizza delivery man at knife-point.
The pizza man, a 26-year-old Santa Cruz resident, told officers he had just delivered a pizza on the 400 block of Cliff Street when a man approached him and asked for a cigarette around 10:15 p.m. The pizza man said he didn't have one and had started to get into his vehicle when the other man put a knife against his back and demanded money, according to police.
The pizza man gave the robber a small amount of money and the robber fled, police reported.
About 30 minutes later, a Santa Cruz police gang investigator spotted a man on Pacific Avenue near Maple Street who matched the description of the robber and stopped him, police reported. Jose Luis Mora Sedano, also known as Jose Mora, had a folding knife in his pocket, police said.
Sedano and another man were shot on lower Pacific Avenue during an apparent botched drug deal on Oct. 28, police reported. Sedano, a 24-year-old Santa Cruz resident, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.
No arrests were made in the double-shooting.
Sunday, Sedano was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery, possessing a dangerous weapon and a drug-related warrant. His bail was set at $55,000, according to jail records.

This guy needs some serious career counseling. He just can't find anything he is good at. Why wasn't he in jail for the drug deal gone bad? Cops bringing them in one door and someone is letting them out the other.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato

Quick turnaround for him. Wonder how long before we read about him and his next exploits......?

This dirtbag is earning a retirement that involves either bars, or a wooden box...it's just a matter of time.
