ODESSA - An Odessa man is behind bars in Lea County for drugs.

The report says that on February 6, 25-year-old Diego Rangel tried to get into Diamond Lil's Bar.

The doorman denied him twice and had to escort Rangel outside.

When officers questioned him, Rangel couldn't stand up straight and admitted to drinking.

He was taken back to the station to detox and that's when officers found cocaine in his pockets inside a dollar bill.

Rangel was arrested and charged with drug possession.
