A 28 year-old man is behind bars after a Brownsville traffic stop led to the seizure of more than $1.1 million dollars worth of cocaine.
Brownsville police pulled over Francisco Javier Espinoza-Reyna for an alleged traffic offense on Friday.
A K-9 officer allegedly revealed the presence of illegal drugs.
Officers allegedly found 15 bricks with 37 pounds of cocaine wrapped in black tape inside his car.
Espinoza-Reyna allegedly admitted to getting paid to deliver the drugs.
The 28-year-old man appeared before U.S. Magistrate Court Judge Felix Recio in Brownsville on Monday morning.
Judge Recio denied bond for Espinoza-Reyna until a Thursday afternoon hearing.
The case remains under investigation by U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents.
