Estrada Munoz Osvaldo and Antonio Aguilar Lopez were arrested after finding drugs in their car, NCSO said.

WINSLOW, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Two men are being held in jail after deputies said they were caught transporting 30,000 fentanyl pills in northeastern Arizona.

According to the Navajo County Sheriff's Office, Estrada Munoz Osvaldo and Antonio Aguilar Lopez were stopped on State Route 87 just south of Winslow on Thursday.

Deputies said they used a K-9 and searched the vehicle. Inside they found about 30,000 illegal fentanyl pills disguised as morphine pills, NCSO said.

Each pill sells for about $30, so all the pills were worth about $900,000.

Osvaldo and Lopez are being held on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
