A truck driver arrested in February during a traffic stop near Diboll has pleaded guilty in federal court.

Highway troopers pulled over 32-year-old Victor Marte on Valentine's Day for a broken light on his big rig.  They searched the truck and found more than 130 pounds of cocaine worth about $1.2 million.

The Florida man plead guilty this week to possession with intent to distribute cocaine.  Marte's sentencing date has not been set.
