MCMINN COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- McMinn County Deputies say they got two million dollars worth of drugs off the streets.
Someone spotted a car driving recklessly on I-75 north, Wednesday morning, and called 911.
Once deputies received the call, they stopped the car. They found more than 26,000 oxycodone pills and a hand rolled cigarette, believed to contain marijuana, hidden in the door.
Deputies say, it makes them want to push harder in their war on drugs.
"It boosts morale around here that's for sure. Everybody's excited and ready to get on the interstate and other areas and start working drugs more heavily than we have been," says SGT. Jerry Wattenbarger.
Deputies arrested the driver of the vehicle, Anthony Vause. He faces several charges.
His passenger, Brandon Grimmer, was also taken into custody.
