WEIMAR, Texas (AP) - East Texas law officers have confiscated about $500,000 worth of cocaine hidden in a false compartment of a vehicle’s radiator.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office on Monday announced the drug bust and the arrest of two people from Lakeway, Fla.

A traffic stop Friday on Interstate 10 several miles east of Weimar (WY’-mer) led to a search. A Texas trooper noticed the radiator appeared to have been altered. A drug-sniffing dog located packages with more than 20 pounds of cocaine.

The Colorado County Sheriff’s Office says 43-year-old Marciano Moreno and his 52-year-old wife Maria were being held Monday on charges of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance. Bond was set at $25,000. Jail records didn’t list attorneys for the pair.
