The firearm had been previously reported stolen during a residential burglary, Vega said.
Christopher Allen Alley, 30, was arrested on suspicion of possessing fentanyl for sale, possessing heroin for sale, possessing methamphetamine for sale, and possessing stolen property, Vega said.
Police seized the $1,215 cash pending asset forfeiture.
Since Alley is a convicted felon, police say he also faces charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, Vega added.
Alley had warrants out for his arrest from Santa Clara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
He was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail, where he remained in custody Tuesday without bail.
