Ty Ty -- Two Tift County men are in jail after they received more than 20-pounds of marijuana that had been intercepted by the Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit.

The bail of seized marijuana has a street value of $25,000 to $30,000.

It was shipped through DHL.

A-D-D-U worked the Midsouth Narcotics Task Force and the Tift County Sheriffs Office to arrest 32-year old Armando Espinoza and 25-year old Abel Martinez.

Espinoza was charged with Trafficking Marijuana and Martinez was charged with Conspiracy to Traffic Marijuana.
