Four people were arrested on felony drug charges after a marijuana bust by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies served a search warrant on the home Thursday night, near 63rd Ave and Indian School.

They located 70 bundles of marijuana weighing 1,571 pounds, and $47,000 in cash. The stash of marijuana was worth $785,000.

Miguel Sanchez, Lizabeth Medrano, Yadira Medrano, and Osmar Cortez were booked into jail on felony drug charges in connection to the bust.

"We're finding more and more illegal drugs smuggled into the United States by illegal aliens, to warrant a crime suppression operation aimed at drugs and illegal immigration in the near future," said Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
