Traffic stop nets massive cocaine bust
by Richard Burton II

Salem - A routine traffic stop Saturday afternoon led Oregon State Police (OSP) to a massive cocaine bust worth over half a million dollars, troopers reported.

An OSP trooper stopped a 2005 Nissan Armada SUV with out-of-state license plates about 12:20 p.m., January 19, when he observed the driver, a 26-year old man, speeding and making illegal lane changes.

During the traffic stop on Interstate-5 near milepost 253, a search yielded 66 pounds of cocaine hidden in a false compartment in the SUV's rear cargo area, OSP said. The 31 kilos of cocaine would have an estimated street value of $600,000.

The suspect was lodged in the Marion County Jail and faces numerous felony drug-related charges. His identity is being withheld to avoid compromising an ongoing investigation by the OSP Drug Enforcement Section.

  • Funny how there's been similar cocaine busts around the country and all with the same quantity. Police won't give this guys name becuase they know the Mexican Mafia can have him killed in jail.
