Hundreds of thousands of dollars in drugs are off the streets thanks to a routine traffic stop by state police.

Troopers pulled over Roshi Grice, 25, and Kenneth Richardson, 27, on Friday morning while the two were traveling on Interstate 12 in Livingston Parish.

When police searched the car, they found more than 13 pounds of cocaine and $8,000. Both suspects are booked in Livingston Parish Prison.
