A traffic stop on Hwy. 287 in Bellevue Thursday morning resulted in the discovery of a large amount of marijuana.

Four clear plastic packages containing a total of 4.73 pounds of what is suspected to be high quality marijuana were recovered in the bust.

Two black males, ages 38 and 34, one from Dallas and one from Fort Worth, are in custody awaiting charges. Their names have not been released.

The men are suspected of transporting the drugs from California. The car, a 2012 Fiat coupe rental, had California license plates.

DPS Trooper Chad Harding pulled over the vehicle for speeding at about 11:15 a.m. The drugs were discovered hidden in the front seats and in two ice chests in the back of the vehicle. A DPS drug dog was called to assist in the search of the vehicle and alerted on the drugs.
