A routine traffic stop turned into a huge drug bust Friday night. Gwinnett County police found $3.5 million in cocaine hidden in a truck cops had impounded for safety violations.
The county's commercial vehicle enforcement unit had no idea what was in the truck when they stopped the driver on I-85 near Indian Trail Lilburn Road, police spokesman Darren Moloney said.
