State troopers find 10,000 pills after stopping truck

State police say their K-9 unit found 10,000 oxycodone pills after troopers stopped a truck on I-95 in Milford.



Police say John Carlos Torres, 30, appeared agitated while talking on the phone at the service center Wednesday afternoon.



Police say they followed Torres, stopped his truck, and then called a police dog to the scene.



They say the dog found the pills, which are valued at more than $200,000.



Given the amount of drugs found, state police say they turned the case over to the U.S. attorney's office.
