SPEARFISH (AP) - Authorities say a traffic stop in western South Dakota yielded 88 pounds of cocaine worth more than $1 million on the street.

Court documents say a Highway Patrol officer stopped a vehicle for a U.S. Highway 85 traffic violation on Aug. 2 near Spearfish, and found two suitcases in the trunk with the drugs.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports two women from Canada were arrested on drug charges. Authorities allege they were taking the drugs from California to Fargo, North Dakota.
