The suspects’ identities have not yet been released due to the ongoing investigation.

Deputies from the SCV Sheriff’s Station summer violent crime enforcement program were conducting the traffic stop at approximately 7:00 p.m. Friday when they discovered a significant amount of hash, hash oil and related narcotic paraphernalia, officials said.

The shipment of “wax” was reportedly being taken to a music festival in San Bernardino County.

Said to be the strongest form of marijuana on the market, “wax” allegedly leads to a quicker, stronger high than other marijuana concentrates and also has psychoactive properties, according to the news release.

Attempting to make “wax” at home is said to be extremely dangerous and is known to cause explosions when done improperly, according to Drug Enforcement Administration officials.
