PHOENIX – Two California men were jailed after state troopers seized 130 pounds of methamphetamine during a traffic stop in northern Arizona last week, authorities said Wednesday.

The drugs were discovered during a search of a Chevrolet sedan that was stopped Friday on eastbound Interstate 40 in Flagstaff, according to an Arizona Department of Public Safety press release.

Two men in the car were booked into Coconino County Jail on a charge of transportation of a dangerous drug for sale, DPS said.

The driver, 21-year-old Marco Aguilar Castaneda, is from Senger, California, and the passenger, 23-year-old Alexis Moto Hernandez, is from Fresno.
