After an early morning chase with a Pinal County deputy, at least two men got away, leaving behind 128 pounds of pot and a car.
The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said the deputy tried to stop a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser for a traffic violation about 4:30 a.m. Sunday, but the driver sped up and deputies followed the vehicle eastbound on Interstate 8 until the vehicle exited on Bianco Road drove along the Central Arizona Canal for nearly a mile.
PCSO said two or three Hispanic men jumped out and ran southbound into the desert. One of the suspects had a bundle of pot.
The driver continued further into the desert and then stopped and fled with a bundle as well.
The car had five bundles of pot and they found another one when they were looking for the suspects. The street value is estimated at $96,000.
The suspects were not found.
