A man and woman were pulled over in Maine and were discovered to have $200,000 worth of cocaine in their possession, half of which was disguised as a cake covered in coffee grounds.

About $200,000 worth of cocaine disguised as a cake was discovered in a car in Maine, according to police, who said they seized the drugs and nearly $2,000 as a result of the stop. 

Police said they responded to a tip and stopped a car on Interstate 295, according to The Associated Press.

They found and seized $1,900 in cash alongside the four pounds of cocaine their K9 sniffed out, police said.
