EL PASO, Texas -

A West Texas ice cream truck was apparently carrying something more associated with giving you the munchies than satisfying your sweet tooth.

El Paso County Sheriff's deputies have arrested two men on drug charges after two plastic bowls containing a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana was found in a purple ice cream truck they were in.

The El Paso Times reports that deputies pulled over the vehicle on Saturday after seeing it had a cracked windshield and an expired registration sticker.

The two occupants -- 19-year-old Elijah Sanchez and 29-year-old Anthony Arellano -- have been charged with possession of marijuana under 2 ounces. Sanchez was also charged with evading arrest and detention after leading deputies on a brief chase.
