 Kentucky State Police said a traffic stop Monday in Laurel County netted close to 900 Oxycodone pills.
 State police said they stopped a work van for traffic violations on Interstate 75 just before 4:15 p.m.
 They said when the driver and passenger could not give them identification and had conflicting stories about where they were headed, officers decided to search the van.
 Police said that's when they discovered 869 Oxycodone pills hidden in the dash of the van.
 They also said the passenger was carrying a large amount of cash.
 The driver of the van, Burke Webb, 52, and the passenger, Calvin Caldwell, Jr., 54, were both arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance.
 They were taken to the Laurel County Detention Center.
