By Compiled From Wire Services

Two agents of Mexico’s troubled drug-enforcement agency have been arrested for failing to report a 1.6-ton shipment of marijuana they seized, the attorney general’s office announced Tuesday.

The agents hid the marijuana at a ranch in the state of Baja California Sur after seizing it from drug traffickers, the office said in a statement.

The National Institute for the Combat of Drugs had assigned Eliazar Castro and Manlio Jesus Valdez, both agents with Federal Judicial Police, to work in Loreto, Baja California Sur.
