TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa County sheriff’s deputies have seized more than $4 million in heroin, meth and cocaine and arrested a Florida man after seizing a tractor-trailer rig where the drugs were hidden.

The Tulsa World reports that deputies found 42 pounds of heroin valued at $3 million; 27 pounds of crystal methamphetamine worth nearly $600,000; and 33 pounds of cocaine worth $500,000 inside the truck.

The tractor-trailer’s driver, Restituto Morales, was jailed on a complaint of aggravated trafficking of a controlled dangerous substance and is being held on a $250,000 bond. He was arrested just after midnight Thursday.

The drug bust is the largest in the history of the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office. It occurred a few months after a separate seizure pulled 10 pounds of heroin off the streets.
