A traffic stop by Mexico police led to the discovery of 660 pounds of fentanyl stuffed into coconuts.

The drug-filled coconuts were located Thursday in a truck traveling on a highway in the northern border state of Sonora. Authorities believe the truck was heading to the U.S.

Prosecutors said the vehicle was detected on a road that runs along the Gulf of California, also known as the Sea of Cortez.
