DURHAM -- According to the Durham Police Department, investigators have recently seized approximately $2 million worth of marijuana and arrested three people Saturday in one of the largest marijuana busts in the Durham Police Department's history. 

The bust comes on the heels of many other big drug seizures in Durham from vehicles in the area.

In the most recent marijuana case, investigators say they stopped a semi-truck in the 500 block of Hoover Road on Saturday. 

During an inspection of the truck, police say they found 1,904 pounds of marijuana in the truck's trailer.

As a result of the arrest, investigators said they arrested Hector Fabian Arguello Meza, age 22, of Troendly Street in Burlington, NC, Ulises Soto Partida, age 23, of an unknown address in Burlington, NC and Aracely Lopez Gomez, age 20, of Troendly Street in Burlington, NC.

Police say that they each were charged with trafficking in marijuana by possession and by transportation. They were each placed in Durham County Jail under a $250,000 bond.

Durham Police said that the arrests were the result of an ongoing investigation.

On May 12th, officers seized 5.65 pounds of black tar heroin (5.65 pounds) from three men in the parking lot of the Exxon convenience store at N.C. 54 and Fayetteville Road.

On April 13th, investigators seized 94 kilos of cocaine worth approximately $2 million and more than 150 pounds of marijuana worth approximately $150,000.  ::
