    February 01, 2012 No comments

    State police say a routine traffic stop in eastern Indiana led to the discovery of 37 kilos of cocaine with a street value of nearly $4 million.

    The Palladium-Item of Richmond reports a state trooper pulled over a tractor-trailer Tuesday along Interstate 70 about 60 miles east of Indianapolis.

    Police say the driver gave the trooper permission to inspect the cab and a refrigerated trailer that was hauling lettuce from California to New Jersey. Authorities say they found 20 kilos of cocaine wrapped in duct tape in the cab and another 17 kilos of the drug in the trailer.

    The truck’s driver and a passenger were both arrested on preliminary charges of possession of cocaine with intent to deliver and possession of cocaine.
