Las Vegas police said they arrested two men early Friday morning for allegedly carrying hundreds of pounds of cocaine worth millions of dollars.

Police said detectives stopped a produce semi-truck “for erratic driving” near Interstate 15 and St. Rose Parkway at around 2: 30 a.m. when a K9 “indicated an alert for drugs which led to a search.”

“A semi-truck had more than just produce on board,” police said in a series of tweets Friday. “Among the load of tomatoes, we found 230 pounds of cocaine with an estimated value of $10.5 million.”

Two men identified by police as Nanak Singh and Chandra Prakash were taken into custody for trafficking a controlled substance, authorities said.

As of Saturday morning, Nevada jail records don’t show whether Singh and Prakash are still in custody.
