Illinois State Police this morning arrested two men on Interstate 80 with more than 1,100 pounds of marijuana in their van.
A state trooper stopped to help the men, whose van had broken down outside of Marseilles, about 60 miles southwest of Chicago.
The trooper saw a bunch of black duffel bags in the vehicle and asked to search it. That's when he found the drugs.
Authorities say 31-year-old Jose Juan Herrera of Gary, Indiana, and 29-year-old Hector Gallarado of Carrollton, Texas, have both been charged with unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver.
