ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

One man is out on bond after deputies found over 29 pounds of marijuana and a small amount of cocaine.

Pedro Valenzuela, 28, is charged with possession of marijuana and he also had two outstanding warrants for failure to appear.

We're told the sheriff's office responded to a tip Thursday that an unknown subject living on Golden Avenue in South Ector County was in possession of a large quantity of marijuana.

Authorities said the tip stated the house had a yellow jet ski in the front yard and the suspect drove a red pick up.

We're told a sheriff's office lieutenant drove to the area and found the pick up truck and the jet ski.

According to the report, as deputies approached the home, Valenzuela was seen carrying a black plastic garbage bag from the jet ski toward the car port.

The report stated that a strong odor of marijuana was coming from the trash bag and officers found several packages of marijuana inside the bag.

Valenzuela was later arrested.

He is currently out on a $30,000 bond.
