Two people from Montana were arrested on U.S. Interstate 86 near American Falls: Joseph Bohan, 20, and Kelci Reynolds, 18, both from Red Lodge.
Troopers say they pulled over the Dodge Neon being driven by Bohan at about 9 a.m. on Wednesday morning for an unspecified "routine traffic violation."
During the investigation, however, authorities say that 6.3 pounds of marijuana and 8.4 grams of cocaine were discovered in the vehicle.
Bohan and Reynolds were arrested on suspicion of felony drug trafficking.
The Power County Sheriff's Office helped out during the arrests.
