Police in Massachusetts say they found nearly 40 gallons of alcohol in a man's van during a traffic stop.
Edwin Loyola-Delvalle, 49, was stopped in Boston early Monday morning for a violation.
Police say a majority of the alcohol was malt liquor. A bag with what is believed to be cocaine was also found.
Massachusetts law prohibits transporting more than 20 gallons of a malt beverage or three gallons of any alcoholic beverages at a time, without a permit or license for alcohol transportation.
Police say Loyola was planning to sell the alcohol.
He is due in court on Tuesday.
