TUCSON, Ariz. -- Federal and local authorities have found more than $500,000 worth of abandoned marijuana near Interstate 8.

The U.S. Border Patrol said Tuesday that agents seized the more than half-a-ton of abandoned marijuana found inside a Chevy Tahoe. The drugs and vehicle were discovered in the Vekol Valley area along the Arizona-Mexico border.

The vehicle, reported stolen out of Phoenix, was released to the Department of Public Safety.

Agents and officers on the ground searched the area for suspects but no arrests were made.
