SEVIER COUNTY -- A Colorado man was arrested after being pulled over on I-70 and found to be carrying 3,000 Ecstasy pills, the Utah Highway Patrol said.

A man was pulled over Jan. 5 on I-70 near Richfield for speeding. He initially told the trooper who pulled him over that he was going to Las Vegas, even though he was heading east, and then later said he was coming from Vegas.

He then admitted he was carrying the so-called club drug often associated with raves.

The pills had an estimated street value of $120,000.

Yeng Lu, 24, was arrested for investigation of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
