The traffic stop of a big-rig near New River on Tuesday turned into a juicy bust for the Arizona Department of Public Safety after 508 pounds of pot was discovered along with a load of watermelons.

DPS says the rig (below) was hauling its load from Nogales, Arizona, where the driver picked up the melons -- and, apparently, the dope -- to Massachusetts. Troopers arrested the driver Anthony Moyd, 39, of Newark, New Jersey.
