Two men are due in federal court this morning in a case where authorities seized several vehicles, including two school buses, filled with marijuana valued at nearly $13 million.

Gerardo Valdez, 22, of Houston, and Juan Jose Villarreal, 35, of Donna, were arrested Saturday in a remote southeast Houston area and are charged with possession and intent to distribute nearly 19,000 pounds of marijuana.
