A 47-year-old Winnemucca man faces a number of drug charges following a year-long investigation.
The Nevada Highway Patrol says Antonio Pimentel Contreras was arrested after a search warrant was served at his bar.
Officials seized about one pound of packaged crystal methamphetamine and a half-pound of powdered cocaine.
An undetermined quantity of marijuana also was located and seized.
Contreras allegedly is involved in the distribution of controlled substances.
The N-H-P says it's believed his business was being used as a place for narcotics sales and prostitution.
Contreras is being held under 530-thousand dollars bail on charges including possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and trafficking controlled substance.
