OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Deputies with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office say they have seized more than $2 million worth of cocaine during a traffic stop on Interstate 35.

A sheriff’s office spokesman says a deputy pulled over a Rowland Heights, Calif., man after noticing he made an "unsafe lane change" over the weekend on the highway.

Authorities say the man gave the deputy permission to search his vehicle. The deputy says he found a black suitcase filled with about 55 pounds of cocaine.

The man was booked into Oklahoma County jail on a complaint of trafficking cocaine base. He has been released on a $25,000 bond.
