Lufkin Police have arrested a man accused of selling cocaine to undercover informants in August.

According to a Lufkin Police report, an officer stopped a Ford pickup in the 1600 block of East Lufkin Avenue at 2:47 p.m. and identified the driver as Israel Rodriguez Deltoro, 51, of Lufkin, who had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.

In the truck, the officer found a plastic bag containing cocaine, according to the report.

Deltoro was arrested on charges of delivery of a controlled substance and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
