— The Wake County Sheriff's Office made a large drug bust when deputies stopped a vehicle carrying $80,000 worth of ecstasy pills, officials said.

Members of the Sheriff's Office Impact Team stopped a vehicle with an expired registration plate on Interstate 540 near Aviation Parkway around midnight Thursday.

When they searched the car, deputies said they found 4,000 ecstasy pills. Officials said the pills have a street value of approximately $80,000.

Deputies arrested the two occupants of the car, whom they identified as Hung Manh Nguyen, 19, of Concord, and Darie Coi, 21, of Charlotte.

Deputies charged the two with trafficking ecstasy, conspiracy to traffic ecstasy and felony use of a vehicle to keep and sell controlled substances. They were held in the Wake County Jail, each on a bond of $1.5 million.
