A 30-year-old resident of Orange was arrested Aug. 11 after Fountain Valley police officers investigating large-scale drug trafficking in Orange County executed a search warrant of his home and discovered drugs, guns and cash, officials reported.

Jonathan Jeffrey Rosslow was arrested at his home and booked on suspicion of possessing drugs for sale and a weapons violation, Fountain Valley police Sgt. Robert Cortes said Tuesday.

Cortes, who oversees the department’s Crime Suppression Unit, said officers learned of Rosslow while investigating illegal drug sales in Orange County. They obtained a search warrant of his residence and executed that warrant Thursday.

Multiple illegal drugs seized from the property — including ketamine, ecstasy, LSD, psilocybin and Adderall — are thought to have an estimated street value of more than $20,000, according to a news release issued Tuesday by the Fountain Valley Police Department.

A 12-gauge shotgun, a .45 caliber handgun and $81,002 in cash were also collected from the residence. Cortes said Tuesday both firearms were legal.

“They were legal firearms registered to Mr. Rosslow. We seized them based on the facts of the investigation,” he said.

Rosslow, whose occupation is listed as landscaper, was booked into jail and is being held on $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, according to an online inmate locator maintained by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
