MCSO arrests 2 in marijuana drug bust

GILA BEND, Ariz. — The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two
people accused of smuggling nearly a half-ton of marijuana, but a third suspect
remains at large.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio said deputies on a drug task force responded to reports
Saturday of smuggling activity in the desert south of Gila Bend.

Arpaio said deputies came across two people on all-terrain vehicles and another
driving a Ford truck.

He said the truck contained bundles of marijuana, amounting to nearly 1,000
pounds.

Deputies have booked Martin Aguirre and Mark Huffine into a Phoenix jail on
drug charges.

Authorities said the third suspect was able to flee into the desert.
