PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A traffic stop led police to a big drug bust in Washington County Thursday.
According to police, a car was pulled over near SW 170th Ave. and Merlo Rd. in Washington County. During a search of the car, drug dog Lola found a kilogram of cocaine.
That find led police to serve a search warrant at a home in Washington County where they found 14 kilograms of cocaine along with $150,000 in cash. Police think the cash is from drug sales.
Police say the drugs would sell for $1.5 million on the streets.
Rosendo Elvira-Vergara, 40, and Cayetano Alejandre-Alcaraz, 39, were arrested and charged with delivery and possession of cocaine.
