20 pounds of meth found in vehicle in Phoenix

PHOENIX - Two men are in custody after Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies seized 20 pounds of methamphetamine from a vehicle in west Phoenix.

Deputies say they arrested 26-year-old Juan Carlos Soto-Neris and 43-year-old Jorge Cecilio Bernal-Araujoon Tuesday.

They say Soto-Neris was the driver of the vehicle, which was transporting two bags of a white substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Deputies believe the suspects were bringing the drugs from Mexico since they only had personal-identification documents issued from there.

Both suspects have been booked into the downtown Phoenix jail on possession of dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs for sale and transport for sale a dangerous drug.
