According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department, a passenger bus headed from Houston to Chicago was stopped on Highway 59 North in Splendora for some type of equipment malfunction around 10:00 p.m. Sunday. Nearly two dozen bus passengers were on the bus and were forced to evacuate and stand on the side of the road after their bus driver was arrested for attempting to transport a huge amount of cocaine and black tar heroin.

As authorities arrived to assist the driver and passengers of the El Expresso bus for that equipment malfunction, they spoke with the driver and then decided to search the bus. According to authorities, K-9 units were called in to search the bus; seven to nine kilograms of cocaine stashed behind the driver’s seat were discovered. Some black tar heroin and another unknown substance were also reportedly hidden on the bus.

The bus driver of that El Expresso bus as well as another man were arrested at the scene. The passengers were finally loaded onto another bus around 4 a.m. Monday morning to continue their trip to Chicago.
