A 22-year-old San Antonio man was arrested on Saturday after a routine traffic stop on North Highway 281 near Farm-to-Market 2044.
Roberto Moreno was booked into the Jim Wells County jail after Deputy Robert Waldrop discovered two bundles of cocaine in his vehicle.
Waldrop made contact with Moreno who stated he was headed home from the Valley.
According to Deputy Waldrop, Moreno was nervous as they spoke and consented to a search of the 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix.
During the search, the deputy discovered five pounds of cocaine inside a blue recycle Walmart bag, Waldrop stated.
Moreno was charged with possession of a controlled substance and set a bond of $5,000.
As of Monday afternoon, Moreno remains in the JWC jail.
