Tulare County law enforcement arrested 25-year-old Jose Zendejas, and 19-year-old Benito Madrigal, both of Washington state,  after stopping their vehicle near Highway 99 and Tulare Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. June 24, according to KFSN-TV in Fresno.

The two men were found with 150,000 fentanyl pills in their vehicle, the station reported. Investigators estimated that the total amount of drugs the men had would sell for $750,000 in street value, according to KSFN.
