An Odessa man is facing federal charges after getting caught with cocaine during a traffic stop.

31-year-old Jacob de los Santos was arrested on Thursday night by the Ector Special Investigations Unit after they pulled him over near Golder and Kermit Highway.

Authorities say he had four ounces of cocaine on him along with $700 in cash.

But there's more.

After getting a warrant, investigators searched his home on north Jackson where they say they found even more cocaine, bringing the total amount of cocaine to almost eight ounces.

Officers also seized de los Santos' suburban.
