NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office have arrested three Illinois men allegedly caught driving through the area with 260 grams of cocaine in their vehicle.

Carl Edward White, 46, Leon White Jr., 31, and Stanley Humphries, 32, are charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance. All three are being held on $75,000 bonds.

According to a press release from Sheriff Jason Bridges, a deputy stopped the car on U.S. 59 north of Nacogdoches, shortly after midnight Tuesday.
