MANDARIN, Fla. – Two men were arrested after they were found with 41 pounds of marijuana between them.

Officials said an undercover Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent saw a marijuana deal going down behind a strip mall on Shad Road and alerted the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said they pulled over John Sara, 37, as he drove away from the alleged transaction, and found 40 pounds of marijuana in the bed of his truck, along with $4,000 in cash.

Another trooper, with a K-9 officer, pulled over Thomas Clark, 31, who was suspected of being involved in the transaction.

The FHP said Clark was found with 1 pound of marijuana, more than $500 and two handguns.

Sara and Clark are both charged with armed trafficking in marijuana. They are both being held without bond.
