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.
