Dec. 9: Authorities allege this truck was used to transport more than a ton of marijuana.
Arizona Department of Public Safety Detectives have confiscated about 2,118 pounds of marijuana from a truck that appeared identical to a United Parcel Service truck.
A suspect fled the scene when an officer and narcotics canine attempted to stop the vehicle, according to MYFOXPhoenix.com.
A search of the truck yielded nearly $1.2 million worth of marijuana bundles typically transported by human drug carriers or "mules" through the desert, MYFOXPhoenix.com reported.
Suspects painted the truck to look like a UPS vehicle, complete with the typical reflective yellow decals, the station reported. The truck also sported a homemade Arizona license plate with a number that was assigned to an actual UPS truck servicing the Tucson area.
The investigation is ongoing, MYFOXPhoenix reported.
