A prison parolee was being held without bail at County Jail on Thursday after being arrested on a variety of drug charges, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.

Dylan Sulit-Swalley, 30, was contacted by sheriff’s detectives at about 3 p.m. Wednesday on the 300 block of Cabrillo Boulevard in Santa Barbara, said Kelly Hoover, a sheriff’s spokeswoman.

“He was detained and a parole search was conducted on his vehicle,” Hoover said. “During the search of his vehicle, he was found to be in possession of heroin, Xanax, suboxone and drug paraphernalia.”

Sulit-Swalley, who was paroled from Pelican Bay State Prison in 2017, was arrested on suspicion of possession of heroin, Xanax, prescription medications and drug paraphernalia, Hoover said.

“Detectives later executed a parole search at Sulit-Swalley’s residence located on the 3800 block of Cinco Amigos in Santa Barbara,” Hoover said. “During the search, detectives located three mason jars containing approximately 35.7 ounces of concentrated cannabis or butane honey oil, 13.7 ounces of butane honey oil packaged for sale in 5-gram vials, and over 200 butane honey oil vape pen caps packaged for sale.”

He was then charged with possession of concentrated cannabis for sale, Hoover said.

Further investigation revealed that Sulit-Swalley was out on bail on burglary charges, and a parole hold was placed on him.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
