A Big Spring man has pleaded guilty to a federal cocaine charge.

Thirty-five year-old Gabriel Aguilar pleaded guilty Thursday to an Information charging one count of possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

Officers searched Aguilar’s residence in December of 2011, and during the search, Aguilar told officers there was around 19 ounces of cocaine in the house, and $60,000 in his closet, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

He told them that he had been selling cocaine for the past year, but was down to his last “bird” or kilogram of cocaine.

Officers found nearly 2.5 pounds of cocaine in kitchen cabinets and his bedroom closet, much of it in 82 pre-measured plastic bags containing seven grams each.

Investigators also found drug paraphernalia, a 9mm semi-automatic pistol, and $78,319 in cash concealed in clothing in Aguilar’s closet.

Aguilar faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison and a $1 million fine. He currently remains on bond.
