Grand County Utah Sheriff Deputies made a traffic stop that ended in a major heroin bust Thursday.

The drugs were found in a hidden compartment inside a car driven by 33-year-old Ramon Romero-Palma and 69-year-old Abelardo Lores, both of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Officials found four pounds of high grade brown crystal heroin worth an estimated $80,000.

They say it would be worth even more broken down into grams for sale on the street.
