A traffic stop early Sunday morning resulted in what may be Clarke County's largest cocaine bust ever.
Sheriff Todd Kemp said Deputy Don Moore, Trooper Harrison Cook and Clarke County's K-9 dog discovered 20 pounds of powder cocaine hidden in a secret compartment in a car bumper.
Kemp said the discovery followed a routine traffic stop on Interstate 59 in Clarke County around 12:30 a.m.
Kemp estimated the street value at $500,000.
Two suspects, Homero Martinez, 23, who had a Wisconsin address, and Gabriel Rogel, 23, of North Carolina, were charged with possession of over a kilo of cocaine.
Kemp said the pair will likely have a bond hearing Tuesday.
