A routine traffic stop nets the largest cocaine seizure in the state. It happened on Interstate 76 near Sterling on Friday.

Officials say the driver of a rental truck consented to a search of the vehicle after he was pulled over. That's when officers found 235 pounds of cocaine hidden in the back of the truck.

The drugs have a street value of $10.5 million. The driver has been jailed on suspicion of drug trafficking. His name has not been released.
