BARNESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Authorities have charged a Miami man who Georgia police say they captured carrying some 40,000 Ecstasy pills in his vehicle during a traffic stop.
Authorities have charged 42-year-old Wayne McDarman Hill with suspicion of trafficking the pills, which authorities say had an estimated street value of about $800,000.
Authorities say the seizure is one of the largest on record in the United States.
Lamar County police say they pulled Hill over for a traffic stop on Interstate 75.
Sheriff Larry Waller says the seizure is believed to be part of a pill pipeline from Florida through Kentucky, and into Canada. He says authorities have also intercepted prescription medications.
