FORT LEE, N.J. – A staggering 50 pounds of cocaine were found after detectives stopped a Bronx cab driver near the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, authorities said Wednesday.

Members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force were investigating drug dealing when they stopped a 2009 Buick Enclave on the Route 95 lower-level toll plaza approach on Monday, authorities said.

A search turned up seven kilograms of coke in a duffle bag on the back seat -- as well as 16 kilos in an electronically-operated hidden compartment, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.

Detectives arrested the driver, 32-year-old Rodolmy Gonzalez-Hernandez on drug charges, the prosecutor said.

A judge ordered that he remain held without bond in the Bergen County Jail following a detention hearing.
