Sometimes people are practically begging to be arrested -- like the two goons who allegedly decided to load 227 pounds of pot into their truck on the side of an interstate highway today.
The Pinal County Sheriff's Office announced the arrests of Prior Marcano, 40, and Fernando Sanchez-Moyinedo, 26, after someone called cops because they'd seen the men loading a bunch of weed into their truck alongside Interstate 8.
Police say the men were seen grabbing the bales of pot out of some bushes next to the highway and loading them into their white Nissan truck.
Deputies pulled the truck over shortly after, and could clearly see the bundles of weed all over the back seat.
The PCSO later weighed the pot at a grand total of 227 pounds, with an estimated street value of $113,500.
