NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) -- Two suspects are arrested after police found over 150 pounds of drugs at the Nashville International Airport on Tuesday.

Trung Tieu, 40, and Tihn Tran, 56, are both facing felony drug charges after police and their K-9 say they discovered luggage around 8 p.m. from a Southwest Airlines flight with a strung smell of air freshener.

Four pieces of luggage, belonging to the suspects, were uncovered with 159.5 pounds of marijuana in total, according to a Metro police affidavit.

The pair did not make their connecting flight to Jacksonville, instead they were each booked into the Davidson County jail with a bond set at $50,000.
