Over 60 pounds of cocaine was seized Tuesday in Williamson County after a traffic stop on I-35.

According to the Williamson County Sheriff's Office, a deputy stopped a 2009 Dodge journey for driving in the left lane without passing in a posted area.

Investigators say the driver -- identified as Sandra Jane Calderon, 34 -- was acting nervous and was giving confliction stories to the deputy. The deputy asked for permission to search the vehicle, which was granted.

With the help of a K9, cocaine was located in hidden compartments in the SUV.

The cocaine weighed approximately 68.2 pounds -- with a street value of just over $1 million, according to the sheriff's office.

Calderon was arrested and is currently in a federal detention facility in Bastrop, facing federal drug charges.

Further details on the incident were not immediately available.
