YUMA, Ariz. -- Federal authorities said they have seized nearly $600,000 worth of methamphetamine and arrested two smuggling suspects at the Port of San Luis.

The Yuma Sun reports that Customs and Border Protection officers made the seizures this week.

Authorities said a 29-year-old man trying to enter the U.S. from Mexico was found with meth valued at more than $180,000 and a 31-year-old man was found with $412,000 worth of the drug.

The two men, both Mexican citizens, were turned over to Homeland Security Investigations.
