TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Sierra Vista Police Department's Community Response Team (CRT) and Homeland Security Investigations (ICE) recovered 514 pounds of marijuana in a house bust.

The bust happened on last Friday, Aug. 16 and has a street value of $154,000.

The investigation started with surveillance on a vehicle being loaded with bundles, believed to be marijuana, in the Coronado Park area south of Sierra Vista.

Detectives followed the vehicle into Sierra Vista where it parked at a residence in the 4500 block of Paseo Arruza.

Contact was made with the driver, 28-year old Julio Irqui Villa of Mexico, who presented a forged US Permanent Resident Card.

Detectives then obtained a search warrant for the vehicle and residence. Two other men were living in the residence and were identified as Steven Gary Grimes, 31-years old, and Patrick Andrew Lawson, 34-years old.

They were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale and transport of marijuana for sale.

Villa, who was in the U.S. illegally, was charged with transport of marijuana for sale, possession of marijuana for sale and presenting a forged document.

All three are being held in Cochise County Jail.
