Deputies who stopped two vehicles traveling together in western Colorado say a search turned up about 85 pounds of marijuana with a street value of about $225,000.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports two deputies with the Western Colorado Drug Task Force pulled the vehicles over on Interstate 70 on Thursday afternoon and arrested 41-year-old Herbert Palacios and 54-year-old Daniel Dove, both of Illinois.

Both men were jailed on suspicion of traffic violations and possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.

The drug task force is a partnership between the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Mesa County Sheriff's Office and the Grand Junction Police Department.
