EL RENO, Okla. (AP) - Central Oklahoma authorities say they seized a large amount of cocaine worth nearly $5 million during a traffic stop on Interstate 40.

The Canadian County sheriff’s office says deputies pulled over a tractor-trailer carrying five vehicles after noticing the driver drift onto the shoulder several times on Sunday night.

Deputies searched the vehicles on the trailer and found more than 75 pounds of cocaine. They say they found the drugs in a false compartment built underneath the rear seats in one of the cars.

The driver was released after law enforcement officers determined he didn’t know he was transporting cocaine. His final stop was set for Oklahoma City.

The sheriff’s office says it’ll work with other agencies to discover where the drugs came from and who they were going to.
