Police say they seized more than 580 pounds of marijuana Tuesday from a home in northern Allen County.

Two men were arrested and charged with dealing marijuana, according to the Allen County Sheriff's Department: Luis E. Perez, 49, and Alvaro A. Rivera, 23, both of Fort Wayne.

The Allen County Drug Task force worked with Indiana State Police, ICE, Fort Wayne Police Department, DEA and New Haven Police. Police said that after spotting a delivery to a house in the 8000 block of Auburn road, the Allen County SWAT team entered the home and seized the marijuana, which police said had a street value of more than $580,000.
