A Goleta man who was already on probation was arrested Monday after Santa Barbara County Sheriff's officials served a search warrant at his home in the 400 block of Valdez Ave.

Heraclio Pulido, 26, was booked into County Jail on charges that include possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was released on $0 bail because of the Emergency Bail Schedule in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sheriff's officials say they had been investigating Pulido for some time. They say detectives found two Springfield 1911 pistols, a Glock .40 caliber pistol, an FN57 pistol, a Marlin .22LR rifle, a Mossberg pump action shotgun, a .357 revolver, and an AR15 rifle in his home, along with a methamphetamine pipe, prescription medication, methamphetamine, cocaine, a scale, and baggies.
