Driver tried to run, police say
A routine traffic stop led to the seizure of four kilos of cocaine on Interstate 93 in Canton Saturday morning, Massachusetts state police said.
A Nissan Quest driven by Hector Rivera Martinez, 40, of Milwaukee, was stopped by police for motor vehicle violations.
When a trooper with a K-9 was called to the scene, Martinez jumped over the guardrail and down a steep, rocky embankment, police said.
Martinez was taken into custody a short time later and a search of the van found four kilos of cocaine, police said.
Martinez was charged with drug trafficking and is being held on $200,000 bail.
