CAMDEN COUNTY, GA -

A routine traffic stop in Camden County netted more than six pounds of cocaine.

The Sheriff's Office says deputies stopped a silver Ford Focus on I-95 southbound around 7:00 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities say the deputies questioned the driver, Gerardo Antonio Lopez, 40, of Miami, and his passenger.

After getting conflicting stories, deputies searched the pair's vehicle.

Deputies found two laundry detergent boxes that appeared to have been opened and then resealed.

Authorities ultimately found 6.53 lbs. of cocaine.

Lopez said the detergent boxes and its contents were his.

He remains at the Camden County Jail on cocaine trafficking charges.
