DPS seizes 11 lbs of cocaine

Oldham County, TX - A DPS commercial vehicle inspection on I-40 near Vega reportedly led to the seizure of more than 11 pounds of cocaine.

The drugs, valued at over $677,000, were found in one of the two vehicles on a flatbed trailer being pulled by a Chevrolet pick-up truck.

Investigators determined the driver was unaware of the illegal drugs.

A follow-up investigation by the CID (Criminal Investigations Division) and DEA led to the arrest of five people in Michigan.

Agents also seized two weapons and a large sum of money.

The drugs were allegedly being transported from Phoenix to Ferndale, Michigan.
