Flash to the past: Three arrested in seizure of 1.5 tons of marijuana


In August of 2004, the Pinal County Narcotics Task Force, with the assistance of the marked patrol division, seized 2,927 pounds of marijuana from two vehicles near Stanfield.

The marijuana-filled, construction-type panel trucks were headed to the Phoenix area but stopped short of their destination by law enforcement.
