Indiana State Police seized 81 pounds of cocaine during a traffic stop Tuesday on Interstate 70 in Henry County, east of Indianapolis.

About half of the cocaine was found in the cab of the truck and the rest was found in the refrigerated trailer, which was loaded with lettuce. The truck was on its way to New Jersey from California. The driver, Moises Delgado, 26, and his passenger, Rene Rocha, 52, were arrested. The value of the seized drugs was estimated at just under $4 million.
