Authorities took down two Mexican drug traffickers who attempted to smuggle more than $90 million worth of illegal drugs into the U.S.

According to reports, U.S. prosecutors announced the arrests of Jose Gastelum-Torres and Alejandro Gastelum-Vega on Friday. The traffickers were taken into custody by the Mexican Navy after their boat was tracked moving through the Gulf of California.

The suspects were found with more than two tons of methamphetamine and 100,000 fentanyl pills they intended to bring into the U.S. If convicted, the men face 10 years to life in prison.
