Associated Press

PHOENIX: Authorities in a western Phoenix suburb say they have arrested two Ohio men for transporting more than 840 pounds of marijuana hidden inside frozen pizza cheese.

The Arizona Republic reported Tuesday that Garris Dickson Jr. and Eric Love remain in a Phoenix jail on suspicion of drug trafficking.

Police in Goodyear say its narcotics unit received an anonymous tip that led officers to a motel early Friday near Interstate 10 on Dysart Road.

Police spokeswoman Lisa Kutis says officers found Dickson and Love unloading bundles of marijuana concealed inside the cheese from a semi-truck trailer and a van.

Kutis says the 843 pounds of marijuana had a street value of about $421,700.

It was not clear where in Ohio the two men were from.
