Deputies in Maricopa County are looking for the suspects who abandoned two vehicles carrying more than $1 million worth of marijuana.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said the vehicles were discovered abandoned early Friday morning in the desert east of Gila Bend after a chase with police.

MCSO deputies searched the area by helicopter but weren't able to locate the suspects.
