An outstanding warrant for a Hobbs man ended up getting him caught with drugs.
44-year-old Claudio Martinez was wanted for violations of his pre-trial release.
Officers saw Martinez leave his house in a Ford pickup.
The truck was stopped and Martinez was placed under arrest.
Police were able to get search warrants for his vehicle and home.
That's where they found about $2,000 worth of cocaine and $60,000 in cash.
He is being held without bond for the outstanding warrant and drug related charges.
