PHOENIX - Two men are behind bars after a major marijuana bust in Phoenix.

Two police officers say they noticed a suspicious truck on Interstate 10 near 25th Avenue on Monday and after running its plates, officers found out it was suspended and not insured.

The officers say they pulled the truck over but the driver and passenger bailed out and took off on foot.

Police found 28 bales of marijuana inside the truck. The driver and passenger were arrested after a short chase.

Authorities say the marijuana has a street value of more than a quarter million dollars.
