DOUGLAS, Arizona — U.S. Border Patrol agents patrolling near the border city of Douglas have found over two tons of marijuana.

The Tucson Sector agents came across two suspicious vehicles on Sunday and attempted to pull them over. The drivers fled at a high speed and agents eventually deployed a tire deflation device to stop them.

The cars had close to 5,000 pounds of pot, nearly 2 ½ tons. The Border Patrol says the marijuana is worth an estimated $2.5 million.

The drivers fled into Mexico and haven't been arrested.

The Tucson Sector has seized over 685,000 pounds of drugs this year.
