PHOENIX (AP) — 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.
