A man was caught transporting nearly three pounds of cocaine aboard a commercial bus passing through Livingston Parish.

The sheriff's office said that Oscar Gonzales-Zuniga, 48, of South Carolina was booked Tuesday on drug charges.

The department said deputies searched the bus after receiving a tip that someone was using the transit system to move drugs into Louisiana from out of state. Deputies said they found Gonzales-Zuniga carrying 2.95 pounds of cocaine aboard the bus.

He's being held on a $50,000 bond.
