An Oregon State Police Trooper stops a cargo style truck just north of Bend and makes an interesting find. Three men were arrested Thursday after a traffic stop reveals they were holding over one pound of cocaine and some marijuana. OSP Sergeant Eric Brown stopped the truck on Highway 97 after watching it drift into other lanes and almost hitting another car. The driver, Juan Pablo Bucio Perez, 30, from Yakima, Washington and his passengers, Jose Cervantes Cuevas, 20, also from Yakima, and Antonio Castenada Patino, 33, from Santa Ana, California were all taken into custody by the Deschutes County Sheriff after a search by a drug detection dog finds the cocaine and pot in the truck. The estimated value of the cocaine is about $15,000. The three men are lodged in the Deschutes County Jail on drug charges.
