Federal authorities are reporting the seizure of more than two tons of marijuana inside three vehicles hidden in the southern Arizona desert near the U.S.-Mexico border.

Customs and Border Protection says the 4,311 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $2.15 million were found Tuesday in bundles inside three vehicles hidden under tarps concealed in brush at two locations west of Sells.

The vehicles included Chevrolet and Dodge pickup trucks and an H2 Hummer.

CBP says Border Patrol agents were assisted by CBP and Marine Corps aircraft.
