MONTGOMERY COUNTY -- A routine traffic stop for having a tail light out on Highway 59 lands two men in jail.

Officials say a Montgomery County Sheriff's deputy found around one million dollars worth of drugs hidden in a commercial passenger bus.

When the deputy and his k-9 unit got out to inspect the vehicle, the dog alerted him to drugs inside the van.

A hidden compartment was found in the luggage area where more than 7,000 grams of packaged cocaine, more than 3,000 grams of heroin and 89 grams of black tar heroin were located.

The bus driver, Juan Vorrath and passenger, Ramiro Trevino JR., were both arrested.
