NEW YORK — Authorities say two men were busted in New York for smuggling 100 pounds of heroin hidden inside a vehicle's axle.

Officials say the men, both natives of Guatemala, had been under surveillance by members of a federal drug task force. They say the men were in their vehicles with North Carolina license plates when they were pulled over together in Elmhurst, Queens Tuesday night.

Authorities say the heroin, worth at least $14 million, was found packaged inside an axle and drive shaft casings in one of the pickup trucks.
