PHOENIX -- Three people allegedly in the United States illegally were arrested Tuesday after five pounds of methamphetamine were found inside a home in the West Valley.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said deputies entered a home located at 6526 W. Riva Road after noticing some activity while conducting surveillance on the residence.

Inside the home deputies came across Jose De Jesus Manjarrez-Cruz, 21, Miguel Antonio Ramirez, 40, and Armando Zazueta-Vega, 22.

MCSO said all three men admitted to being in the country illegally, and confessed to transporting the drugs into the U.S. from Mexico.

All three men are now facing multiple drug charges.
