PHOENIX -- Authorities say four men have been arrested and 152 pounds of marijuana seized by Border Patrol agents in the mountains south of Yuma.

Agents on patrol Thursday in the Cabeza Prieta Mountains found three backpacks filled with marijuana hidden under rocks. Border Patrol said the agents searched the area and found four men hiding under a plastic tarp.

The suspects, all Mexican nationals in the country illegally, were taken into custody.

Authorities said the marijuana was worth about $76,000.
