HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say an Orange County police dog sniffed out $1.3 million worth of cocaine hidden in the trunk of a car that had been pulled over for a routine traffic violation.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/MmFcji) Huntington Beach officers found about 27 kilograms of packaged cocaine tucked in the space of the Nissan Sentra where the spare tire would normally be stored.

Forty-four-year-old Antonio Tzampop and 39-year-old Jose Campos, both Panorama City residents, have been booked on suspicion of being in possession of a controlled substance.

Police say the cocaine was located by a canine officer and his drug-sniffing dog, Bohdy.
