NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities in New York say two women from Texas were busted for transporting more than $4 million worth of cocaine.

Prosecutors say the cocaine was hidden in a pair of speakers in the back of a U-Haul truck. They say the two were arrested in Queens on Sunday following a long-term investigation.

Twenty-six-year-old Nolvia Lili Amador Manueles, of Houston, and 19-year-old Monica Lucia Venegas Grimaldo, of Brownsville, face charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy. Information on their lawyers was not immediately available.

If convicted they face up to 20 years in prison.
