SUN TIMES MEDIA WIRE - Two women were detained but later released after police found $500,000 worth of cocaine in their vehicle Monday in northwest Indiana.
An officer pulled over a black 2009 Nissan with Illinois license plates about 12 p.m. on Interstate-94 near Jackson Township, according to the Porter County sheriff’s office.
The two women appeared nervous and told inconsistent stories about where they were going, the sheriff’s office said.
A K-9 search of their vehicle found five kilos of cocaine in compartments under the driver and passenger seats, authorities said. The value of the cocaine was estimated to be half a million dollars.
The two women were detained but released pending further investigation.
