ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Two men were arrested Tuesday in Anchorage for trying to transport drugs, Alaska State Troopers said.
Frank Bevo, 60, of Nome was arrested Tuesday afternoon at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. Troopers say Bevo was trying to travel to Nome with 10 ounces of cocaine and two ounces of marijuana in his checked baggage.
Bevo is being held at Cook Inlet jail on $15,000 bail on felony drug charges.
Less than two hours after Bevo's arrest, Darryle Wilson, 34, of Kotzebue was arrested at the Anchorage airport for allegedly trying to take 1.8 pounds of marijuana to Kotzebue.
Wilson is being held at Cook Inlet jail on $10,000 bail.
