(CBS) EL PASO, Texas - Two men were arrested in west Texas after they were found to be in possession of marijuana...that they were transporting in an ice cream truck, CBS affiliate KDBC reports.

According to the El Paso Times, 29-year-old Anthony Arellano and 19-year-old Elijah Sanchez are facing multiple charges after deputies from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office caught the pair in possession of the drug.

KDBC reported that on Saturday, authorities observed a dilapidated ice cream truck with an expired registration sticker and a cracked windshield.

When police stopped the vehicle, the station reported, Sanchez made a run for it. He was soon caught, however, and police said they found that Sanchez had two tupperware bowls with him containing a green leafy substance that cops believed to be marijuana.

Arellano was also arrested when additional supplies of the drug were allegedly found in the ice cream truck itself.
