    Two California men were arrested Thursday night on drug trafficking complaints after state troopers found $3 million in cocaine in their tractor trailer rig.

    Arman B, 28, and Arson B, 23, are being held in the Lincoln County jail with bail set at $1 million each.

    Troopers stopped the rig eastbound on Interstate 44 at mile marker 183 in Creek County, said Chris West, spokesman for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

    He said 150 kilos of cocaine were discovered in the trailer. The two brothers were hauling a load of oranges, he said.

    West said this is not a state record for the amount of cocaine retrieved by troopers in a bust, but it is significant enough that the names of the troopers involved are being kept confidential for safety reasons.
