LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department police dog alerted police to $10.5 million worth of cocaine hidden in a truckload of tomatoes, police said Friday.
The more than 200 pounds of illicit drugs were found in a semi-truck stopped near Interstate 15 and St. Rose Parkway, police said.
Police stopped the driver for driving erratically around 2:30 Friday morning, police said.
“The nervous driver had a story that didn’t add up,” police said in a tweet.
K9 Nuggetz then alerted officers to the drugs, they said.
Police arrested two men: Nanak Singh and Chandra Prakash on charges of trafficking a controlled substance.
