SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) -

A Sikeston man is facing various drug charges after an undercover investigation.

According to the Scott County Sheriff's Office, Erik Jose Tiscareno-Jacobo, 22, was charged with two counts of distribution of a controlled substance (cocaine), possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Jacobo is accused of selling around 12-grams of cocaine to an undercover detective. He was allegedly in possession of two grams of cocaine when he was arrested on Thursday.

After searching Jacobo's home, detectives found 14 bags of controlled substance. Each bag had around 1/2 of a gram of substance believed to be cocaine, according to the sheriff's office.

Investigators also found marijuana, drug paraphernalia and an unknown amount of money.
