PINAL COUNTY, AZ (CBS5) -

After an early morning chase with a Pinal County deputy, at least two men got away, leaving behind 128 pounds of pot and a car.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said the deputy tried to stop a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser for a traffic violation about 4:30 a.m. Sunday, but the driver sped up and deputies followed the vehicle eastbound on Interstate 8 until the vehicle exited on Bianco Road drove along the Central Arizona Canal for nearly a mile.

PCSO said two or three Hispanic men jumped out and ran southbound into the desert. One of the suspects had a bundle of pot.

The driver continued further into the desert and then stopped and fled with a bundle as well.

The car had five bundles of pot and they found another one when they were looking for the suspects. The street value is estimated at $96,000.

The suspects were not found.
