MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — An undercover marijuana operation involving New Hampshire and Massachusetts police has resulted in the arrest of two men and the seizure of 16 pounds of the drug.

Manchester police said they developed information that indicated a large source of marijuana was coming from a location in Northampton, Mass. Undercover officers presented themselves as prospective buyers Thursday to coordinate delivery of 10 pounds of marijuana to Manchester.

The transaction led to the arrests at a motel of Rodney Sinclair and Henry Pacheco, both 47 and from Northampton. Police recovered additional marijuana in one of the men’s duffel bags and in the motel.

It has an estimated street value of $56,000.

The men were  arraigned Friday on a charge of possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute.
