Large Cocaine Haul In Peru

Posted by wlpo on April 12, 2011

There was a big cocaine bust yesterday afternoon on Interstate 80 in Peru.

A state trooper says he pulled over Wilmar Mesa for improper lane usage.  The trooper searched Mesa’s SUV and says he found a built on compartment in the back of the SUV which had 26 pounds of cocaine.  That’s estimated to have a street value of 230 thousand dollars.

Mesa was taken to the county jail.
