The State Highway Patrol has seized an estimated $2.8 million in cocaine from a tractor-trailer near Springfield after receiving a tip on a hotline introduced this year to help crack down on drug trafficking.

The patrol says someone called to report suspicious activity by a commercial tractor-trailer along Interstate 70.

Troopers stopped the truck for a driving violation early this morning and discovered 32 kilos of cocaine in the sleeper area.
