A total of eight grams of cocaine was seized at a home on the 800 block of Hughes Street Thursday.

Jim Wells County Sheriff's Narcotics Division executed a narcotic warrant at the rental property. When agents arrived they found Jose Angel Hinojosa outside as he worked on his vehicle.

The 34-year-old was immediately detained. Inside the home, agents detained Asheley Ponce and a woman as they searched the property.

According to investigators, the cocaine was found hidden between the cushions of the living room couch. Investigators also seized drug paraphernalia.

Hinojosa has been a target of other narcotic investigation in the past and was arrested several times on drug charges.

"We will continue to disrupt these operation and make arrests from the north and south to the central (area) of Jim Wells County," said JWC Sheriff Daniel Bueno.

Hinojosa was transported to the JWC jail and charged with manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance.

Ponce was arrested on an aggravated assault warrant.
