The search of the minivan yielded suitcases full of cocaine. 290 pounds of it to be exact. To put that into perspective, that is the equivalent of 1,160 quarter-pound hamburger patties.

Colorado State Patrol troopers arrested Tyleke Stokely of North Carolina and Darvin Campbell of Alabama for investigation of possession with intent to distribute more than 112 grams of cocaine. The two are also being charged as special offenders for transporting more than seven grams of cocaine into the state of Colorado.
