TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say two women aboard a commercial shuttle van in Arizona have been arrested after Border Patrol agents found methamphetamine hidden in two buckets of chicken.

Border Patrol says the agents discovered the drugs Thursday during a stop at an Interstate 19 checkpoint near Nogales.

Authorities say the drugs weighed about six pounds and were valued at more than $58,000.

The suspects have been held pending federal prosecution, and the methamphetamine has been turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The identities of the suspects were not immediately released.
