MILFORD, Conn. (AP) - State police say a West Haven man has been arrested after troopers found 10,000 oxycodone pills valued at $200,000 from his vehicle after a traffic stop.

Troopers stopped the truck around 3 p.m. Wednesday on Interstate 95 in Milford after spotting vehicle violations. A police dog alerted officers to drugs in the vehicle. A search revealed a bag containing the oxycodone, an opioid.

Police say 30-year-old John Carlos Torres was arrested after a brief chase. He was turned over to agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration. State police say the DEA will be filing criminal charges against him.

It could not be determined if Torres has a lawyer.
