Grand Junction, Colo. (AP) Two Grand Junction residents are behind bars, accused of having more than a two-week supply of methamphetamine on them when arrested over the weekend.

Police arrested 45-year-old Carl Garcia and 27-year-old Jaime Perez after a traffic stop Saturday allegedly led officers to more than eleven grams of meth -- hidden inside a cigarette pack.

Authorities say they also found some small plastic bags, along with a glass pipe and marijuana inside the pair's Ford Explorer.

The two face charges of possessing marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
