Greenville police have charged Jose Aguilar of Canton, NC with trafficking by possession and trafficking by transportation.

Police say an officer stopped the man's pickup truck for traffic violations on Highway 264 near Old Stantonsburg Road. A K-9 alerted to drugs and a subsequent search of the truck netted lawmen the cocaine, worth an estimated $200,000.

Aguilar is jailed on a $525,000 bond.

    I'm with Anthony on this one, one more "routine traffic stop" and always around the same place on 264. C'mon, guys, who do you think you are kidding? Of course, it seems to be working!

        Uhm, What you dont understand is that the snitch was likely a dealer who got busted and cooperated with the fuzz to get out of trouble.A criminal who likely knows other sources for his product and will continue to do the thing.Snitches are weak people with no backbone.That being said I hate cocaine and AM glad they got him.
