KAUFMAN (KYTX) - A Kaufman man was arrested after police found drugs valued at approximately $80,000 at his residence.

Sergio Martin Santoyo, 35, was charged with possession of a controlled substance Monday. Officials found what is believed to be 225 grams of methamphetamine and 3 kilos of cocaine at a residence in the 100 block of Melody Circle.

The search warrant was carried out after an undercover operation, performed earlier in the month, led Kaufman County narcotics officers to a drug selling operation at the residence.

Santoyo also had an outstanding warrant for delivery of a controlled substance in penalty group one, over 4 grams but less than 200 grams in a drug free zone.

Santoyo was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Kaufman County Law Enforcement Center, where he awaits arraignment.
