A report of a stolen vehicle led to Florida sheriffs busting four men with 430 pounds of marijuana and $43,000 in cash.

Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post on Thursday that deputies responded to a stolen vehicle report on Jackman Boulevard in Winter Park.

Upon arrival, deputies located the vehicle backed into a driveway with a male driver trying to start it. Two other males were standing outside the stolen vehicle.

The three men – identified as Michael Strozewski, Angelo Sueque and Craig Hillman – were taken into custody.

During an additional search of the home’s backyard, deputies also apprehended Kadin Baskin, who attempted to flee through a side garage door.

In the truck of the stolen vehicle, authorities found about 50 pounds of marijuana, while an additional 380 pounds, a handgun and $43,000 in cash were discovered inside the residence.

Agents with the City-County Investigative Bureau estimated the marijuana was worth $1.2 million in street value.
