LEEDS, Ala. (AP) – Two California men were jailed in Alabama after police said they found almost 1,000 pounds of marijuana worth nearly $3 million hidden in a camper just off Interstate 20.

Police say officers found 953 pounds of marijuana wrapped in plastic hidden throughout the camper. Authorities say two men were jailed on trafficking charges with bail set at $1.5 million each.
