SAN MANUEL, Texas (AP) - A South Texas traffic stop has yielded more than $2.6 million worth of cocaine and led to the arrest of the driver.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Tuesday announced a trooper confiscated more than 42 pounds of cocaine during the stop in Hidalgo County.

DPS says the stop happened Monday morning on U.S. 281 north of San Manuel. Investigators did not immediately say where the packets of cocaine were concealed in the car.

The driver was arrested on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
