PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Attorney General's Office says a state grand jury has indicted two men suspected of selling methamphetamine and possessing 10 assault rifles during the commission of a drug offense.

Prosecutors say Jorge Dario Burboa Arevalo and Luis Domingo Santillan are accused of being part of a drug trafficking organization.

The two were observed by law enforcement engaging in what was believed to be a drug transaction in August 2020.

A search warrant served on the home where the men were living turned up about 20 pounds of methamphetamine and 10 AK-47 style rifles.

Investigators believe the men intended to take the rifles to Mexico.
