REXBURG, Idaho — Eastern Idaho police say two men transporting marijuana from California to Montana called 911 while in Idaho after mistakenly believing undercover officers had discovered their secret.

But police in Rexburg say they weren't aware of the drugs until the two men called on Friday to report their location and the 20 pounds of pot worth $16,000.

The Idaho State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1zbBSf9) that police arrested 21-year-old Leland Ryan Kaimipono Ayala-Doliente and 22-year-old Craig Sward Holland. Hometowns weren't available.

The men are being held in the Madison County Jail and face charges of drug trafficking.

Police Capt. Randy Lewis says police had no idea the two men had any marijuana until they alerted authorities.
