DOUGLAS, AZ (CBS5) -

U.S. Border Patrol officers seized more than 180 pounds of marijuana stashed inside a Ford van driven by two women from Mexico near Douglas on Wednesday.

The 187 pounds of pot worth about $93,000 were found throughout the interior of the van, including the backs of the rear seats, the roof, and in the quarter panels and door panels, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection news release.

The women's visas were canceled and both were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security.
