In a massive drug bust that’s being described by officials as being "ripped from a Hollywood script,” authorities in a rural Arizona county say they’ve seized nearly $3 million worth of methamphetamine and heroin during a traffic stop of a family in a motorhome.

Navajo County Sheriff's Department officials say when a deputy pulled over the RV on I-40 near Holbrook, a rural stretch of the freeway in the sparsely-populated northeastern part of Arizona, he became suspicious when he noticed plywood braces on the floor and that the gas tank had been tampered with.

"Upon searching the vehicle MCAT [Major Crimes Apprehension Team] Detectives and Traffic Enforcement Deputies located numerous large bundles of methamphetamine and one bundle of black tar heroin,” Navajo County sheriff’s spokeswoman Susan Baton told television Fox 10 in Phoenix. “The bundles weighed anywhere from three to five pounds each and were covered with black duct tape," she told the station.

Meth, heroin found in RV worth nearly $3M

It’s estimated the street value of the methamphetamine is approximately $2.8 million, while the street value of the heroin is believed to be around $136,200. The two adults in the motorhome were taken into custody, while a young child was also in the RV. The names of the adults, or the age of the child have not been released.

Authorities note similarities to movie 'We're The Millers'

In announcing the arrest on Wednesday, authorities noted the true, but sad similarities to the movie “We’re The Millers,” a 2013 comedy starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, where a drug dealer creates a phony family and uses an RV to smuggle a load of drugs into the U.S.

from Mexico. Besides the meth and heroin recovered from the vehicle in the real life version of the bust, a DVD of the movie was also found inside.

The remote stretch of highway where the bust took place, about 90 miles east of Flagstaff, Arizona is known more for its access to the Petrified National Forest, rather than million-dollar drug busts, though two months ago authorities made two major drug seizures in the same area on the same day.

Just six days before Christmas a New Mexico man was arrested with an estimated $400,000 worth of cocaine, while an hour earlier two California women were arrested when authorities found nearly $336,000 worth of marijuana in the vehicle they were driving.
