Two drug dealers were arrested in a suburb near Paris after attempting to sell nearly 150 lbs of marijuana to undercover police officers.
The officers were in an unmarked police car tailing a stolen car on Wednesday night when they were approached by the two traffickers, French news outlet Europe 1 reported, who were looking to deliver the drugs and may have mistaken the waiting officers as their contact.
After replying affirmatively, the officers used tasers to detain the traffickers, AFP reported.
Each bale contained about 75 lbs of drugs wrapped in 3oz-packaged, according to French news outlet Le Parisien.
France has one of the toughest drug laws in Europe, with users facing up to a year in prison and a fine of €3,750 ($4,400) and traffickers facing up to 10 years or even life in prison in particularly serious cases, and up to €7.5 million ($8.7 million) fine.
