STOCK ISLAND, Fla. - A Florida Keys man was arrested on drug charges after authorities found cocaine hidden throughout his Stock Island home, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities found a large number of individual bags of cocaine hidden in a coffee table in the living room, cocaine hidden under the kitchen sink and cocaine on top of a bed, Herrin said.

They also found $2,914 in cash hidden in the wall of the hot water heater closet, Herrin said.
