CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - Undercover drug agents have made a huge cocaine bust in Carbondale.

The Southern Illinois Enforcement Group (SIEG) intercepted a delivery of drugs on its way to a Carbondale home.

Undercover officers delivered the drugs to a home on the 500 block of Poplar Street.

It was two kilos of cocaine, which is more than five pounds and seven and a half pounds of marijuana.

Officers say the cocaine alone is worth more than $280,000.

SIEG officers say this is one of the biggest coke busts they've seen.

"Hopefully we kept someone from becoming an addict, or saved a life and put a drug dealer in jail for a long, long time," said David Fitts, Southern Illinois Enforcement Group.

Keith Nardi and Jonquin Henry are in the Jackson County Jail on drug charges.

Officers say the investigation's not over yet.
