A traffic stop on Tuesday in the Texas Panhandle yielded a hefty amount of illegal narcotics.

A Texas DPS trooper stopped a 2003 Fleetwood recreational vehicle that was traveling eastbound on Interstate 40, for a traffic violation near Conway in Carson County at about 5:40 p.m. Tuesday, March 25th.

The driver of the RV was 60-year-old Ignacio Hernandez of Fowler, California.

The trooper discovered 47 pounds of marijuana valued at more than $208,000 and five pounds of cocaine valued at more than $156,000, hidden in the floor of the vehicle.

Hernandez was placed under arrest for possession of a controlled substance.

The drugs were allegedly being transported from Fontana, California, to Oklahoma City.
