Indiana police say that they arrested a truck driver and his passenger after discovering a large amount of cocaine inside their vehicle during a traffic stop.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says that they conducted a traffic stop around 9:15 p.m. on September 8 on I-465 at the Kentucky Avenue exit in Indianapolis after officers observed a semi truck driver committing a traffic violation.
