(Washington-AP) -- Washington County sheriff's deputies said they found six-point-eight pounds of cocaine in a vehicle stopped for not having a license plate light.

Officers said the cocaine had a street value of one-point-two (M)million dollars.

Deputies Matt Stoker and Chris Ray stopped the vehicle on Interstate 15 yesterday.

They said Ray obtained permission to search the vehicle after the occupants gave inconsistent stories and were acting nervous.

The three men, from California and Washington, were booked into Purgatory Correctional Facility for investigation of drug violations.
