FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say two men have been arrested after being found with 205 pounds of marijuana in their truck.
The Pinal County Sheriff's Office says a deputy stopped an F-150 pickup truck north of Interstate 10 on Monday night after witnessing several traffic violations.
The agency says the deputy noticed a strong odor of marijuana in the vehicle and found four bundles of the drug inside worth an estimated $153,750.
Both men, a 43-year-old from Elroy and an 18-year-old Mexican citizen, were arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana, among other charges.
Authorities say the 18-year-old admitted entering the country illegally and was being detained for federal authorities.
