(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – Idaho State Police found more than $1.2 million in illegal drugs during a traffic stop near Idaho Falls Saturday.  Officials say a U-Haul was pulled over along I-15 just after 2 a.m. because the driver couldn’t maintain his lane of travel. When police found discrepancies in the rental agreement for the truck, officers searched the vehicle, finding 52 pounds of methamphetamine and 27 pounds of cocaine. 29-year-old Sergio Varela-Vallecillo of Honduras, and 28-year-old Felicia Varela of Texas were booked into the Bonneville County Jail. An investigation is ongoing.
