Police officers recently arrested two men after allegedly discovering more than 300 pounds of illegal drugs in a tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike in Newark, NJ.
The suspects, a 33-year-old man and a 42-year-old man, are both from California. According to law enforcement officials, the suspects were driving a tractor-trailer when patrol cops observed the vehicle commit multiple traffic violations. Police officers pulled over the tractor-trailer and walked toward the vehicle.

A subsequent police search of the vehicle reportedly led to the discovery of duffel bags filled with approximately 310 pounds of cocaine and heroin.
