STURBRIDGE, Mass (WGGB) – A traffic stop in Sturbridge leads to a major drug bust by state police.

A trooper pulled over three men in a Nissan Maxima Saturday afternoon for a lane violation.

That trooper called in a K-9 unit and the dog indicated drugs inside the car.

Police found more than 200 oxycodon pills and $37,000 inside a secret compartment.

The driver, 22-year-old Juan-Gabriel Laboy-Rodriquez of Philadelphia was arrested on narcotics violations, as were the 2 passengers – 26 year old Hector Guilamo of New York and 21-year-old Michael Gonzalez, also from New York.

Two of the men, Laboy-Rodriquez and Gonzalez, were also wanted for immigration violations.
