Six men were arrested early Monday for allegedly smuggling 40 pounds of cocaine from Mexico to Bucks County.

The $8 million in cocaine was brought to the U.S. from Mexico in a truck, Bensalem Public Safety Director Fred Harran told the Bucks County Courier Times.

Arrested were Alfonso Vallejo, 45, of Brownsville, Texas; Fernando Garcia, 31, of Philadelphia; Arnaldo Rodriguez, 33, of Philadelphia; Jairo Nunez-Dejesus, 35, of Allentown; Antonio Ferreira, 34, of Whitehall, Pa.; and Jhon Torres, 34, of Macungie, Pa.

Vallejo is a Mexican citizen; Nunez-Dejesus, Ferreira and Torres are citizens of the Dominican Republic, according to court records. All were charged with felony manufacturing, delivery or possession with intent to deliver or manufacture drugs, and other charges, reports the Times.

Bensalem Police made the bust after they received a tip about possible drug dealing in the area of Haunted Lane in Bensalem. The men were arrested and the cocaine seized in a warehouse on State Road, police say. The warehouse was being used as a redistribution center.

Harran told the Times that more arrested could happen .
