Police in Arizona were chasing a car. The chase reached speeds of up to 100 miles per hour (161 kph) on one of the state’s highways.

The police car had a dashboard camera which captured the incident. In the video, you can see that the men in the car threw out bales of marijuana. In the end, police forced the car to stop. The criminals tried to run away on foot but police caught them.

Later, police found around 374 pounds (170 kilograms) of marijuana on the road. They later discovered a house with more of the drug.

Difficult words: chase (to follow somebody to catch them), dashboard (the flat area in front of the driver), bale (a block of something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
