GARDINER, Maine (WABI) - Two people are facing drug charges after police say they found about four pounds of cocaine in their car - some of it disguised as a cake.

Officials say the street value of the cocaine is about $200,000 and it was going to be sold in Kennebec and Somerset Counties.

Police stopped the vehicle Tuesday on I-295 in Gardiner.

25-year-old John Cedeno of New York and 33-year-old Chelsy Cochran of Winslow are both charged with drug trafficking.
