Two men are accused of trafficking hundreds of pounds of cocaine worth more than $10 million, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Nanak Singh and Chandra Prakash were booked for trafficking a controlled substance following a traffic stop near Interstate 15 and St. Rose Parkway at around 2:30 a.m. Friday (March 25), the department confirmed on its verified Twitter account.

Police described the driver as "nervous" and said they're alibi of having only produce on board "didn't add up" before K-9 Officer 'Nuggetz,' a German shepherd, alerted for drugs, leading to a possible search.

"A semi-truck had more than just produce on board. Detectives stopped the truck for erratic driving near I-15 and St. Rose Pkwy around 2:30 a.m. this morning. The nervous driver had a story that didn't add up," the department tweeted on Friday. "Among the load of tomatoes, we found 230 pounds of cocaine with an estimated value of $10.5 million dollars."

Nevada Jail online records are accessible to the public, but do not list Singh and Prakash or whether they are still in custody as of Saturday (March 26).

The Las Vegas Review Journal did, however, reported that the two men were being held on $5,000 bond and scheduled for a court appearance on Saturday.
