Cocaine Seizure Value

Cocaine seized during a Monday drug seizure in Oldham County was valued at nearly $5 million.

According to court documents, at 1:34 pm, a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper was working on I-40 in Oldham County when he saw a black 2022 Cadillac CTS driven by 51-year-old Brian Davis of Ohio.

The Cadillac, which was a rental car, was traveling east on I-40 near mile marker 45.

The trooper saw that the Cadillac was speeding, pulled the car over and found some incriminating evidence. The area is known for drug trafficking.
Davis denied the trooper access to search, and a K-9 unit was called in.

Two large luggage bags with five large bundles, later identified as cocaine, were found in the trunk.

The five bundles weighed about 137 pounds. Both the suspect and a passenger were detained, and Davis admitted he thought he was carrying marijuana.

The charge against Davis is possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
