Two Middle Easterners Held Without Bail

Two men with Arabic surnames were being held without bail following their arrest on Interstate 90, the New York State Thruway. The men were pulled over in the town of Salina (near Syracuse) due to excessive tint on the windows of their Mercedes. Troopers reportedly discovered marijuana in the car and "high-tech" forged Michigan licenses. The men are being held on "immigration charges" as well as the drugs, while FBI and Border Patrol agents investigate.
