A 23-year-old Pullman resident was arrested Thursday after detectives from the Quad Cities Drug Task Force found cocaine and other drug paraphernalia in his house, according to a press release from the task force.

Francisco J. Torres Jr. is facing three felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance, as well as one felony charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, according to the release. Torres is currently in Whitman County Jail.

Detectives from the task force, as well as officers from the Pullman Police and Lewiston Police Departments, obtained a warrant and searched Torres’ home Thursday morning. Detectives found about two grams of cocaine, scales, packaging material, snort tubes and $190 in cash, according to the release. 

Officials also searched the room of Torres’ roommate and discovered about 1/2 pound of cocaine, 60 Xanax pills and $700 also in cash and in a locked safe, according to the release. Detectives believe that Torres received drugs from his roommate.

Investigation on Torres’ roommate continues, according to the release.
