Michigan State Police have arrested three people and confiscated nearly $1 million worth of cocaine following a recent traffic stop.
Soldiers stopped a vehicle on July 27 for a traffic violation. The driver authorized a search of the vehicle after police noticed the occupants were behaving suspiciously, MSP said, according to Fox 17.
But the driver took off before a search could take place. A woman and two young children were also in the car.
The vehicle would later crash, but there was no one inside when the soldiers arrived. The soldiers discovered 22 pounds of cocaine in the car.
