MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Four men are facing charges after police say they were busted with 2,100 pounds of marijuana.

Standing before a judge Wednesday, the suspects were told about the charges against them.

The arraignment comes one day after police confiscated a hidden stash of marijuana worth an estimated $2 million.

Charged in the case are brothers Aramis and Gabriel Diaz. Also arrested were Armando Sauceda and Rene Hernandez.

According to the affidavit of complaint, police stopped Armando Sauceda as he was on his way to make a drug deal.

That stop led officers to the Diaz brothers and a house on Reenie Avenue where the big discovery was made.

Officers also confiscated $170,000 during the raid.

In court, only the Diaz brothers and Armando Sauceda appeared before the judge. Hernandez was arranged Tuesday.

All four men are charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and are due back in court April 9.
