A truck heading to Massachusetts that was stopped by police in Arizona contained 1,400 pounds of marijuana, a haul worth $2.1 million on the street, authorities said.
The truck was stopped on Interstate 17 at about 4:30 a.m. Friday, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said.
Thomas Belliveau, 49, of Bozrah, Conn. was arrested after police pulled the rig over for an equipment violation and allegedly found the marijuana. He was charged with transportation of marijuana for sale.
The truck was headed from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. to Westborough, according to Bart Graves, spokesman for the Arizona DPS. He did not release any more specifics. A Massachusetts State Police spokesman said he wasn't aware of the incident.
The vehicle, owned by M & G Enterprises in East Hartford, Conn., contained frozen food products along with boxes loaded with marijuana.
