Bust nets $25 million in drugs

| 10/30/2007

If the driver of a truck who was pulled over by Louisiana state police for a safety inspection had remained calm, he might have been sent on his way.

But the Baton Rouge Advocate quotes a trooper as saying Manuel Rodriquez appeared nervous.

After Rodriguez signed a consent form, they searched his tractor-trailer and found $25 million worth of cocaine and methamphetamines.

Police said the load came through the Texas border town of Hidalgo and was headed for New York.
