LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - On Tuesday, two people were arrested after the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force made a traffic stop on I-10 near Vinton and found hundreds of prescription pills not belonging to either passenger in the vehicle.

Authorities pulled over the vehicle, and received permission from the driver to search the truck.

Officials found eight bottles of prescription medication that did not belong to the two people inside the vehicle. The bottles contained 119 Xanax pills and 239 Hydrocodone pills, among various other pills. The reported street value for the Xanax and Hydrocodone pills is around $2,000.

Both the driver, 27-year-old Larry Hamilton of New Iberia and the passenger, 30-year-old Eldridge Hoskins of Lafayette were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center. Both were charged with two counts of possession of CDS Schedule III and two counts of possession of CDS Schedule IV.
