YOAKUM COUNTY - A former sheriff's deputy in Yoakum County landed himself behind bars.

43-year-old Inoe Valdez, Jr. was sentenced to four years behind bars for distributing cocaine.

The investigation started with a traffic stop involving a suspected drug trafficker.

That guy had sent text messages to Valdez.

Prosecutors say Valdez admitted to distributing cocaine saying financial debts led him to sell the drugs.
