Cocaine Bust Near Utica

Posted by wlpo on January 28, 2011

A man from Mexico could be headed back home after getting arrested near Utica.

State Police pulled over Enrique Rangel-Rodriguez Thursday morning for speeding and following too closely.  He was headed eastbound on Interstate 80 and was stopped just west of Utica.

Troopers searched the trunk of Rangel-Rodriguez’s car and allegedly found five packages of cocaine, weighing a total of 12 pounds.  He was arrested for drug trafficking and was also wanted on a federal warrant for probation violation.

Rangel-Rodriguez was taken to the county jail.
