Man arrested in Arizona with nearly $4 million worth of drugs in his car

A man from Utah was arrested this week when police found almost $4 million worth of illicit drugs in his car in Arizona, according to CBS Utah affiliate KUTV. Logan Lewis Pederson, 30, was pulled over on Interstate 15 near the Utah border Monday afternoon.

KUTV said Pedersen "appeared extremely nervous" during the traffic stop. The station said a St. George Police Department K9 unit assisted and that's when the narcotics were found inside his white sedan.
