JACKSON, Miss. —
A traffic stop on Interstate 20 in Mississippi led to the discovery of $100,000 worth of cocaine and two arrests.
Othor Cain with the Hinds County Sheriff's Department tells WLBT TV in Jackson deputies pulled over a vehicle shortly after midnight Tuesday.
Cain says deputies became suspicious while talking to the men in the vehicle and obtained a consent warrant to search the vehicle.
Cain says authorities discovered the drugs in a hidden compartment.
He says 49-year-old Santos Martinez-Rodriquez, of Reading, Penn., and 47-year-old Josue Melendez-Vasquez, of Elizabeth, N.J., were arrested and charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute.
Police believe the two men were passing through Hinds County on the way to Pennsylvania from Texas.
It was unclear whether the men have attorneys.
